So now you know why I'm here and what I'll be looking for as I lurk around the site.
Have a great day everyone!

I'm actually going to be on this tour D-Day to the Liberation of Holland
at the end of April, beginning of May, and will post photos and my impressions when I get back. I'll be following my Dad's footsteps. He was also at Falaise with the Artillery. Look for http://www.ww2f.com/...ale-sapper.html as Brian speaks about his experiences at Falaise here with the British Army.
Try this http://www.ww2f.com/...ly-history.html where I've added quite a few links to Canadian WWII sites. There are quite a few well-written books Canada's role in NW Europe. I highly recommend anything by Terry Copp. I'll do some looking and if I find anything on the 4th Canadian Armoured Division I'll post it. If there is not a thread already, I'll start one.
I've had the genealogical version of my Dad's records from Library and Archives Canada, but since it's still not 20 years since Dad died, I'm trying the ATIP route hoping I'll get his records before our trip - although I've left it a little late! I too was doing genealogy, but found my research always had me wanting to know about my Dad and my mother's service before I could be enthused about looking for anyone else. Good luck in your search.
