A hero among heroes
The canine mascot, Sergeant Gander of the Royal Rifles Regiment of Canada, died in Hong Kong in 1941 following a heroic act. In his mouth, he picked up a grenade thrown by the Japanese and ran to distance himself from the men. He was disintegrated by the explosion. As a result, he received posthumously the Dicken medal in 2000 for his sacrifice.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary
The Sherbrooke Hussars, successors of the 7/11 Hussars, head for Hong Kong with 22 Hong Kong veterans to honor the fallen.
Adjudant Mathieu Giard was wounded in Afghanistan in 2007
Despite his wounds, his passion for the army remains intact.
He received the Canadian Forces Sacrifice Medal for those wounded under honourable circumstances as a direct result of hostile action.
Pay Tribute to our Heroes
The photo of Melbourne Soldier Corporal Michael Viens during a rememberance ceremony in Kapyong, Korea, in 2008. This photo seems to be the inspiration for the 25 cent coin, to pay tribute to our veterans in 2010.
