FULTON, Lt. Col. Lockhart Ross, C.M., D.S.O., E.D.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lt. Col. Lockhart Ross FULTON on October 21, 2005, in Birtle, Manitoba. Lt. Col. L.R. (Lockie) FULTON was born in 1917 in rural Manitoba. Raised on a mixed farm in Birtle, Manitoba, the fifth of a family of seven children, Lockie quickly learned the benefits of hard work tempered by familial love and affection. At the early age of 16, Lockie began his military career by joining the 12th Manitoba Dragoons, a unit of the militia, where he excelled in skills such as horsemanship. When war came, he transferred to the 1st Battalion, Royal Winnipeg Rifles which was awaiting mobilization in Nova Scotia. At this time, he also seized the opportunity to marry his childhood sweetheart from Birtle, Nellie FINCH. In August of 1941, the Regiment was sent to England where it spent the better part of the next three years organizing, training and gearing up for eventual combat. During this period, Lockie rose steadily in the ranks, performing a number of duties and at one point being selected for the elite British training program at Barnard Castle, one of the few Canadians so honoured. In February, 1944, he was promoted Acting Major (later confirmed) and given command of 'D' Company, one of the four rifle companies of the Battalion. On D-Day, June 6, 1944, the Royal Winnipeg Rifles were part of the initial assault on Juno Beach. Landing with the first wave, Major FULTON led his company past intense enemy fire, rapidly overcoming the defenders and capturing the town of Graye-sur-mer, gapping a minefield in the process. Almost immediately, as lead company for the Battalion, Lockie's men fought their way several kilometers inland to the town of Cruelly, where the battalion encamped for the night. The following day, the Battalion pushed on to the village of Putot-en-Bessin, abutting the crucial Caen Bayeux Railway, becoming one of the first Allied units to reach its final D-Day objective. On June 8, significantly larger and more heavily armed German forces, overran 3 companies of the Battalion. Many of those taken prisoner were later murdered by the infamous 12 SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend. The assault on Major FULTON's company, however, was decisively thwarted, preserving a key portion of the objective until a counter-attack by the Canadian Scottish Regiment fully restored the situation. For his accomplishments on D-Day and at Putot-en-Bessin, Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery presnted Major FULTON with the Distinguished Service Order, a recognition second only to the Victoria Cross. Major FULTON continued to lead his company with considerable success, often against formidable odds. In the assault on Carpiquet Airport in July, 1944, they had to advance across a large, wide-open field while being subjected to a fierce mortar and artillery barrage. Despite heavy casualties, Major FULTON and the remainder of his force eliminated strong enemy resistance and captured their objective - two of the airport hangars - before being ordered to withdraw due to the difficulty of maintaining armoured support under the intense enemy artillery and anti-tank fire. At the Leopold Canal in Belgium, Lockie was appointed Battalion Commanding Officer. He was 27 years old. Promoted Lieutenant Colonel, he went on to lead the Battalion to a string of hard-fought victories, from the Scheldt Estuary through the liberation of Holland and on into Germany itself. After the war, Lt. Col. FULTON returned to his wife and family to enjoy his life as a successful grain farmer in his home town of Birtle, Manitoba. During his life in Birtle he raised six children, and contributed much to the civic life of the community for which contribution he was awarded the Order of Canada. His retirement years were spent wintering in Victoria, British Columbia. In his latter years, Lockie put his military knowledge to historical use, giving numerous speeches and talks as well as continuing research with Battlefield Study Groups. He returned several times to his old battlefields, most recently for the 60th Anniversaries of D-Day and VE Day; at both events he may have been the only surviving battalion commander in attendance. He also never lost touch with many of his old comrades and with the Regiment itself, past and present, maintaining a mutual air of great respect and affection. Lockie's military accomplishments were further recognized in 2004 when the government of France awarded him the Legion of Honour, that country's highest honor. Perhaps the best summing up of Lockie FULTON as a military leader would be the citation for his D.S.O., which read, in part: 'Major FULTON's personal bravery, his complete disregard for his own safety and his coolness and skill in leading his command are considered to be in keeping with the highest traditions of the service.' Lockie FULTON was predeceased by his loving wife Nellie in 1998. He leaves to mourn his passing his children and their partners: Bruce and Rosemarie, Geoff and Lynn, Debbie, Peter & Sandy, Jennifer and Don, Abigail and Alan; his grandchildren, Lockhart, Evadne, Deirdre, Vanessa and Liona; his surviving brother and sisters Harvey, Eva, Margaret, and his sister-in-law Marion FULTON. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lockie's name to the Palliative Care Unit, Birtle District Hospital, Birtle, Manitoba R0M 0C0; with the intention that donations will first go towards the establishment of a volunteer co-ordinator for the Unit.

'Epitome of the citizen soldier' led his men from the beaches of D-Day to the deadly forests of Germany without a scratch, and then returned to his Manitoba farm
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, November 19, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Ignoring a hailstorm of bullets and shrapnel, Lockhart FULTON hopped off the ramp of his landing craft into the English Channel a few hundred metres from German-occupied France. It was 7: 49 a.m. on D-Day, June 6, 1944, and Mr. FULTON, a company commander with the 1st Battalion, Royal Winnipeg Rifles, was part of the first wave to go ashore.
A few minutes later, Mr. FULTON, a major from Birtle, Manitoba, who believed in leading the 130 men of 'D' Company from the front, ran up the beach and got to work directing his company. All around him, his men deployed like clockwork, assaulting heavily fortified positions. Decades later, Mr. FULTON remembered wading through the water under fire. "It's funny what you think about. It looked as if someone was skipping stones across the water, and we were trying to step over the skipping stones."
Over the next hour, the four infantry companies of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles, facing heavy fire from more than 15 German machine guns nests and five concrete emplacements, eliminated those positions one by one. By 9 a.m., Mr. FULTON and his company, now past the beach, headed for the town of Graye-sur-Mer. "Once you get past fixed defences, it's over," he said decades later.
After capturing Graye, 'D' Company, reached Cruelly by 6 p.m. and dug in for the night. It had been quite a day for Mr. FULTON and his riflemen. The biggest invasion force in history, including 15,000 Canadian soldiers, had established a second front. By the end of the month, the Allies had landed more than a million men.
After reaching the village of Putot-en-Bessin on June 7, Mr. FULTON and his battalion, part of the 7th Canadian Infantry Brigade of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division, faced their first really severe test when they were attacked by a much larger German force.
"Putot was a critical point on the bridgehead. Not only was it on the road to Carpiquet and Caen -- the pivot on which the entire Normandy campaign was hinged -- but it could control the road and rail lines from Caen westerly to Bayeux, on which British troops were advancing," said Bruce Tascona and Eric Wells in Little Black Devils: A History of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles.
Next morning, the notorious 12th SS Hitler Youth Panzer Division launched a furious attack. By the end of the afternoon, after intense hand-to-hand fighting, three of the Winnipeg Rifles' four companies had been overrun. For his part, Mr. FULTON and his company grimly hung on. "Although overrun, infiltrated and isolated, the stand by the Regiment gave the [Regina Rifle Regiment] enough time to stop Meyer's Panzers at Bretteville. Their stand allowed the division time to regroup. Putot became a symbol of courage and steadfastness," said Tascona and Wells.
The Winnipeg Rifles suffered 300 casualties at Putot, more than half its fighting strength. What happened next to 58 of their wounded, who could not be evacuated, plus eight other Canadians, constituted a war crime. Ignoring the Geneva Convention, the German soldiers executed them. After the war, SS commander Maj.-Gen. Kurt Meyer was condemned to death for the murders. He spent nine years in prison after his sentence was commuted.
For his battlefield gallantry, displayed June 6-8 at Juno Beach and Putot, Mr. FULTON was presented the Distinguished Service Order by Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery in November of 1944. "Major FULTON's personal bravery, his complete disregard for his own safety and his coolness and skill in leading his command are considered to be in keeping with the highest traditions of the service," the citation read.
Over the next 11 long and weary months, Mr. FULTON fought in all of his battalion's battles in Normandy and the Netherlands. Leading a seemingly charmed life, the 6-foot 2-inch major was a conspicuous figure on the battlefield. "He was a leader that led," said retired Lt.-Col. Norm DONOGH, who landed on D-Day with the Rifles. "People depended fully on him and they felt secure in what he planned and what he did."
On July 4, 1944, Mr. FULTON and his company advanced over a kilometre across an open field as the Rifles attacked the airfield at Carpiquet, defended by the 12th SS and 20 tanks. Meyer's Hitler Youth, many of who were still in their teens, fought like fanatics. At one point during the battle, Mr. FULTON was seen standing calmly upright, talking on his field telephone as bullets and shells flew around him, "as if he were back in Birtle."
Decades later, he was asked how he managed to keep his cool under enemy fire. "You just concentrate on what you have to do," he replied. "I survived many battles. I don't know why. They missed me, I guess."
Later that night, Mr. FULTON and his men were withdrawn, after capturing two airport hangars. The Rifles had suffered 132 casualties, including 40 dead. Their "performance in this hornet's nest can best be described as one of endurance. Few regiments could have succeeded," wrote Tascona and Wells.
Three months later, during the battle of the Leopold Canal, Mr. FULTON was promoted lieutenant-colonel and appointed commanding officer of his battalion during the battle of the Leopold Canal on the Belgian-Netherlands border. At 27, he was one of the youngest commanding officers in the Canadian army. He had little, if any, chance to celebrate, though, since his battalion was fighting to clear the Scheldt estuary, a confusion of dikes, flooded fields and islands. It cost the battalion 71 dead.
The battle of Moyland Wood, in the Rhineland the following February, claimed another 49 deaths amid a forest spiked by booby traps, mines, snipers and machine guns. It was there that Mr. FULTON displayed his characteristic style of leadership. After deciding that flamethrowers mounted in Bren gun carriers would provide much needed support in the forest, Mr. FULTON found he had to calm his nervous carrier officer, said Mr. Donogh.
"The carrier officer said, 'Sir, you can't take these tracked carriers into heavy woods,' " recalled Mr. Donogh. "Instead of arguing, he put his arm around him and said, 'this will work.' The flame carriers turned the tide."
Fear never troubled Mr. FULTON for long. "Everyone was scared, including me, but some men seemed to recover from fear faster. I was like that. I could get over it, quick. Some men never could," he said in 2004.
Lockhart 'Lockie' FULTON grew up on the family farm in Birtle, Manitoba, about 300 kilometres west of Winnipeg. After joining the 12th Manitoba Dragoons as a cavalryman -- the pre-war militia still rode horses during the 1930s -- Mr. FULTON was transferred to the Winnipeg Rifles.
After surviving the war without suffering a scratch, he considered staying in the army but decided instead to return to his farm and to his wife, Nellie. "My wife had a difficult time on her own. The last thing she was looking for was chasing a soldier around the country. I liked farming -- liked it a lot," he said in 2004.
Over the next four decades, Mr. FULTON raised wheat and barley, helped raise six children and played a prominent part in local affairs. Always a strong supporter of his old regiment, he returned several times to the European battlefields of his youth to explain what had happened to young officers. In 2004, Mr. FULTON received the Legion of Honour from France. He was awarded the Order of Canada the same year.
For Mr. Donogh, Mr. FULTON was the "epitome of the citizen soldier. He was a symbol of what a soldier should be -- he was quiet and gentle but authoritative when he needed to be. He was just a good guy, that's all."
Lockhart Ross FULTON was born on March 31, 1917, in Birtle, Manitoba He died there on October 21, 2005, of cancer of the gallbladder. He was 89. He is survived by his sons Bruce, Geoff and Peter, and by daughters Debbie, Jennifer and Abigail. He also leaves his brother Harvey and his sisters Eva and Margaret. He was predeceased by his wife Nellie.
