Served in unit from 79 to 80 then went into Reg Force ..Just checking in. I don't get down to Belleville often as I retired from the CF in Calgary. Proud to have been a Hasty Pee.
I found info on Frank Rowden who served in Italy and died September 1944. Not an immediate relative but likely connected somewhere. I kept getting asked if we were related when I was in the unit

I was doing a little internet exploring regarding my late uncle Rupert Sapsworth uncle and am happy to see that he has not been forgotten.
Having visited Italy several times, pre-internet days, I had no knowledge of where he was interned.
The Moro River Canadian War Cemetery is now on my list of places to visit.
He would be happy to know that he has never been forgotten and that his name lives on through me, and my grandson Charles Joseph Rupert Rakki.

My great great uncle Fredrick Ernest Punchard fought with The Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment back in 1943 in Valguarnera, Sicily. As a child, i was always fascinated with the daring stories my grandfather told me about him. He was a brave man and i hope to soon visit him at the Agira Canadian War Cemetery in Sicily in the near future.

congratulations on the new website - looks very nice.
I don't get to Hasty P country very often but hope to do so sometime in 2017. I was last there a year ago, November 2015, to premiere my "Hasty P-centric" documentary "Bond of Strangers - The Operation Husky Story." I hope those who did not see it last year or get a DVD/Blu-ray were able to see it on TV last week. DVDs/Blu-rays still available at www.hootmotionpics.com.
Last month I went on another military history tour of Italy, where my dad (James T. Fraser) and so many other Hasty Ps fought. It was great getting back again to see the sites, make new acquaintances and renew old friendships with the local people.

i am the son of Sgt. Robert Benedict Blanchard, my father spoke very little of the war, but he was very proud of his service with the regiment. He was the first President of the Royal Canadian Legion in MacTier ON and was asked to lead Branch 407 on a number of other occasions. If there is anyone left who may have served with him. I would appreciate any information you may have about him.
Respectfully, Mike Blanchard
