  1. My father Sgt Peter Carne of the British Royal Engineers was attached to the Winnipeg Rifles during the Normandy Landings. He was a surveyor, a specialty I believe required to survey and prepare for the erection of Bailey bridges, to replace those bridges destroyed. He landed with the Winnipeg Rifles on Juno beach on June 8th at 07.40, having been delayed by tides and poor weather. I have his handwritten diary of the events.
    He is 96, but pretty hearty and we wonder what the WF are planning to celebrate their battle honours in Europe. If his health continues we intend to take him back to France in June 2020 to celebrate the 75th anniversary.

  2. Hello I am trying to find out more information about my uncle rifleman Mervyn Robinson who landed D-Day and was killed in battle taking the Caen airport . I am having hard time gathering his information . if there is anything you can do to help it would be appreciated . I was named after him and would like to know more. Thank You
    Mervin Robinson
