Charlie far left enlisted in the
Saskatoon Light Infantry (MG) September 1939. He left Saskatoon Dec
4 1939 for Halifax Nova Scotia and then went overseas on the Duchess
of Bedford. He landed at the King George Locks in Glasgow
Dec 19, 1939. Charlie was then transferred to the R.C.O.C. in 1942.
At the fall of Crete they formed a new detachment to keep the
Infantry supplied when they invaded France. He went France early
July and on through to Germany and finally returned to Canada
in July 1945.
Charlie is a very active member of
our branch and gives a lot of his time and expertise to branch
projects. He is a 52 year member of the
Legion and because of his work and dedication to our Branch he was
awarded Valley City Br36 Legionnaire of the year award in 2004.
Charlie continues and hopefully
will continue for a long time to come to be an asset to our branch,
as we hope all our Veterans will be.
