In Memoriam: Admiral Robert Falls 1924-2009

Admiral Robert Hilborn Falls, CMM, CD, the Chief of Defence Staff of the Canadian Forces from 1977 to 1980, died peacefully in Ottawa 6 November 2009. He will be remembered by a few members of SfP as having attended and contributed to our 1985 disarmament conference the full proceedings of which are published under the title Defending Europe (Taylor and Francis 1986). Robert Falls was Vice-Chief of Defence Staff 1974-77. In 1985, after his retirement from the Navy, he became President of the Canadian Centre of Arms Control and Disarmament (now the Canadian Council for International Peace and Security).
