Juno, Where Citizen Soldiers From Canada Made History


The speaker introduced his address as a talk "about a generation of Canadians, that 60 years ago, gave every person who ever gave a speech here (since 1945) the freedom to do so. He read excerpts from his book "Juno: Canadians at D-Day, June 6, 1944" and also showed footage shot during the assault at Bernieres-sur-Mer made by the Queen's Own Rifles. He also relates the story behind, and importance of, this footage. Some very moving concluding remarks acknowledging the veterans.
