Veteran Biographies

Over this past many months interviews have been conducted with some of our esteemed WWII veterans or their widows and in some cases, a child or relative, which have contributed to the composition of short biographies describing a veteran’s life.

 

The intention was to present an outline of the man’s entire life to achieve a full appreciation of the veteran and his contribution to Canada in both times of civilian peace and those that were only exceeded through his war time service with the First Hussars.

 

The war fought across Europe in 1944-45 has deprived us of 196 personal interviews, their memory now displayed on graves and memorials overseas. The First Hussar families contacted maintain their respect for these men, and others who have passed on since the war, by preserving personal files and mementos honouring their loved ones which they readily share on these pages.

 

Please read and enjoy these biographies. The intention is to release more biographies in the upcoming months as they are written. Remember, the First Hussars is more than a Regiment – we are a family.
