This summer a group of dedicated Canadians will follow the 230 km path of the 1st Canadian Division during the Sicilian Campaign on its 80th Anniversary.
An important part of that pilgrimage will be the daily placing of a marker for each Canadian soldier, sailor, and aviator who died fighting for freedom. 53 of the fallen were Gunners, who died in the convoy approaching Sicily, and in the hot dusty hills of that island while serving the guns. Anti-tank, anti-aircraft, survey, and field Gunners made that ultimate sacrifice, and we now have the opportunity to step up as a Regiment to honour them. The individual markers can be sponsored for $150. Smaller donations are accepted, of course, as each will help us ensure that Sicilians and Canadians know that we have not forgotten our fallen.
