Norm Christie calls on remembrance community to band together

Author/Broadcaster Norm Christie spoke at the May 6, 2018 meeting at the R.S. McLaughlin Armoury. In a video interview afterwards, he explains why groups like COBWFA need to join other organizations across the country to urge the government to help them preserve the history of our Canadian forces.

Norm also updated us on Recover Our Vimy Heroes, his project to find the missing members of the 16th Battalion, Canadian Scottish Regiment, killed at Vimy who have no known grave and are probably buried in a mine crater, CA40. He is trying to find their remains and organize proper commemoration of these Canadians.
