and this year I have expanded on his accomplishments.
Always willing to take a moment for the photo op,
even in wartime.
With his buddies of 73 Squadron
in the North African desert
during the charge on Rommel's forces
With his buddies in the 443 Squadron
in Britain in January 1944
Leaning against his plane
as he served duties taking him to Normandy and Arnhem
Nothing was showing in the cards
nothing made obvious
as Dad played football at Acadia University
#8 in the back row
was about to embark upon
a hero's voyage.
Life takes it's journey
and Dad knew he had his journey to follow.
My brother, Mike and I are very proud
of our father
hold onto these pictures and stories
with much honour and respect.
