In January, 2015 I was contacted by a journalist from The Netherlands, doing research on still photographer Lt. Donald Grant of the CFPU. Robert Jan Leerink was doing a two page story for the De Stentor, an Apeldoorn-based Dutch regional newspaper. Would I happen to know when Lt. Donald Grant had passed away.
Lt. Don Grant is famously known for capturing the image of Major David Currie in the act of winning the Victoria Cross on August 19, 1944.
Below is a link to the book that includes a piece on Lt. Donald Grant;
Below is the article that was published in De Stentor;

My name is Robert Jan Leerink and I’m doing some research for a two page story about Donald I Grant (and the Canadian Film & Photo Unit ) for the Stentor newspaper in the Netherlands.
Do you have any clue when he passed away ?
