    Detail provided by Cathy Purvis
  • Charles Stockley Rippington met Prince Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) on Nov 6, 1919
  • Royal and viceroyal transport in Canada:
    The Canadian Pacific Railway Alexandra was built and used as the primary VIP transport by members of the Royal Family, governors general, and prime ministers through to the 1920s.
    It was used, and, in contrast to his opinion of royal trains in Britain, enjoyed by Prince Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), during his months long tours of Canada; as he said in 1919:
    "I progressed westward in a magnificent special train provided by the Canadian Pacific Railway.
    My quarters were in the rear car, which had an observation platform.
    This last... while providing me with a continuous view of the varied Canadian landscape had however the drawback of making me vulnerable to demands for ad lib speeches from the crowds gathered at every stop."
    Four years later, the Prince briefly took the controls of the CPR 4-6-2 engine pulling the Royal Train.
