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

While in Ortona, Italy my husband, boys and I came across the headstone for Private G.E. Ott. He was killed at the age of 16. Today we remember him and all other Canadians who fought and died to allow freedom to reign.

The battle at Ortona is significant to my husband's family. They were living in the area at the time of the war. If not for soldiers like Private Ott, I may not have my husband or two boys today.

It certainly is great to have a Regimental web site available again. I have added it to my favorites for quick reference. Paratus!
