Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to follow. Our advance team for retracing the steps of Canadian troops 75 years ago leaves for Sicily July 4. Please help us get the word out here, on Facebook and on Instagram. Don’t let the 562 be forgotten.

Well, more informed on his military history than the average England Football Manager. Probably has the same chance of victory and similar options in the event if defeat as von Paulus...

Not sure the resistance could have destroyed the same amount of rolling stock that the bombers did. This book is a must read for me! Thanks for the review.

The Montague, PEI, Royal Canadian Legion is hoping social media will help them find the owners of a set of military medals found in a service station parking lot. Share widely, and reach out if you have any information.

Roughly 40% of aluminum used in the German war economy in 1944 was recycled materials. A small portion of that total fell from the skies... meaning downed Allied aircraft were salvaged to build German aircraft!

This summer, in the spirit of reconciliation, we will march with our comrades-in-arms and long-ago foes from the Italian Army. Like our troops, they were above all husbands, fathers, sons and brothers.
