    Hi Philly..your Grandfather was a great witness and the story he has preserved to share for this time now. Everything matters and all artifacts and bits of information...including eyewitness accounts make a great difference when sharing and teaching during this period in time. Thankyou for sharing this treasure..it is a great contribution . Regards Larry

    He started out in the 5th Canadian Reg. until he got hurt. Then worked with the Knights of Columbus as a projectionist in charge of troop entertainment, I think.

    So many of us have ancestors who could not/would not put pen to paper. You are very fortunate and thank you for sharing.
