Re: Remembrance Day - Veterans Day

Every Canadian guy or gal my age can receive In Flanders Fields.  My grandfather a sappeur was wounded there in WW1, and the other an anti tank artillery sgt. Was wounded on leave in London during a bombing, 1week before his regt. would embark for D day.

My uncle was wounded when his Halifax crashed, but he finished his tail gunner missions over Berlin and became a Flying Officer with the RAF, finishing the war sipping tea in Yorkshire.  He even flew crew on d day support.

All 3 of my sons served, 1 as a trooper (mounted recon), 1  as a sappeur, and no kidding, one as regimental piper.

Retired forensic photographer.
London, Ontario, Canada.
