Thank you for posting. The contribution of the Canadians is sadly often overlooked.

Not one mention,,,even once…in The Longest Day film. We even got the Kieffer FF Commandos and French SAS paras, tiny units. But, as a kid, I had no idea Canadians had even been involved in D-Day, both airborne and Juno beach.

Sadly overlooked indeed. A disgrace actually.

Whenever I am in a bookshop looking to buy a book on WW1 or WW2 I always check the index first to see if Canada or Canadians are even mentioned.

Rest assured the French haven't forgotten. As a citizen of a 'dominion' participant during WWII we tend to get overlooked a lot in media. Then again I often hear myself saying … no "one else is going to tell your story". If you don't like the domination of remembrance in film and TV being all about the US and UK then make your own shows. In Australia we have a good economy and 26 million people: Canada has a larger economy and 37 million. So what's stopping us?

I remember stories of my parents generation (baby boomers) of travelling in Europe and being thanked for the efforts of the previous generation.
