A new medal for Canadian Bomber Command veterans
Great news for the men of Bomber Command. If you haven’t heard, Canadian veterans who served with Bomber Command during the Second World War will receive a special commemorative bar meant to recognize the contribution and sacrifice they made during the war. At least 10,000 Canadian airmen were killed. It seems these special honours sure take a long time to work their way through the system. It wasn’t that long ago that veterans of the Dieppe Raid, my grandfather included, received the Dieppe Bar. Even so, it is one more way we can remember the war, honour the veterans and pay tribute to the role Canada played during the war.
