Juno Beach Centre, Canada’s D-Day Tribute.

The campaign has been a big success with hundreds of Canadians from coast-to-coast stepping up to honour 260 of Canada’s fallen servicemen to date. After eight days of hard work by a team of dedicated volunteers, the Tribute installation was completed on June 1. You can read more about the process on our website – it was no small feat to install 359 posts under difficult conditions! As soon as the posts started going up, scores of visitors to the Juno Beach Centre began to stop by the installation, walking through the rows, reading the names, and taking a moment to reflect on the Canadians being honoured. With five months remaining in the campaign, there are still 100 Tribute Markers to be sponsored. We hope to have all of the soldiers sponsored by Remembrance Day. The Tribute Markers will remain on display at the Centre until May 2015.

The Regimental Association participated in this venture and made a donation to sponsor a tribute marker for Cpl. Sidney Howarth who was killed on 6 June 1944, the only Cameron to fall on that day.
