In keeping the blog as up to date as I can, it seems that several others aspects of my research and other duties are falling far behind.
Thus I have decided to take a two week breather... to deal with some of these pressing matters.
I shall return on Sunday, September 24th with hopefully some exciting news on the Douglas Munro story, a major Ontario development and efforts moving forward on a new memorial in Minnesota.
In the mean time please use the search engine on this site and type in any of the following names to revisit their tales of heroism. Each of these heroes,all Medal of Honor, and Victoria Cross men were either born or died in the last or next week of this month, at some point in history. or failing that, performed their bravery on a date in that span of time, or awarded their medal in that span of time.
Medal of Honor recipients... James Allen, Charles Asten, Frank Bois, Robert F Dodd, John Everetts, James Flannigan, Phillip Moore and Charles MacGillivary.
Victoria Cross recipients... Billy Bishop, Leo Clarke, Alexander Dunn, Joseph Kaeble, John Kerr, Phillip Konowal, Thain McDowell, Claude Nunney, John Patterson, Frederick Peters, Herbert Reade and Arthur Richardson.
I hope you will take some time to review a few of these stories.
