In Their Words 08 – A Matter of Historical Value

in History by

I am a Canadian military veteran currently living in Phoenix, AZ. I have spent nights and weekends over the past few years publishing short duration non-commercial videos documenting Canada’s involvement in WW2. When I recently ran across a 1941 report by C.P. Stacey on the film recording of Canadian military activity, I was drawn to create a documentary on the subject of his report. Thought you might be interested in a link. Love the work you all do to preserve this facet of our history – please keep it up. Sincerely, George Saulnier “A Matter of Historical Value” YouTube Link: https://youtu.be/N6b5P3fz1pE
