Provost did indeed serve in the "front line" (and still do no matter where Canadian troops go in harms way), unless your definition of the "front line" is that of a piece of ground 2 m wide running the length of the battle field. Saying "our Unknown Soldier was not a wiener ticketing people for jaywalking - he was a soldier under arms who died fighting the enemy." brings disrespect not only to those Provost who did die fighting the enemy under arms but also every other person who died while serving in a CS or CSS unit, or even in an "infantry" battalion whose numbers included all manner of trades, including Provost.
I have been to War Cemetaries from Europe to Japan and in each of them there have been headstones inscribed with "Provost Corps".
Shame on you sir for incorrectly implying that those not "hard" combat arms did not pay the ultimate sacrifice with honour, for they did. The least you could do is to honour their memory.
