Maj. Burns Shield

Major Burns Trophy

Major Garry Burns served as the Squadron’s seventh commanding officer from 1990 to 1993, and again from 1997 through to 2000. Throughout his nearly thirty year career with 151 Squadron, Major Burns always demonstrated the highest level of leadership. Much of the current NCO Course structure and style is attributable to him.

Each year, the Squadron conducts a rigorous NCO Course which is a local prerequisite for promotion. The competition is stiff for the few positions available, and this shield is presented to the candidate who places first on the course.
