Book Signing at the Royal Canadian Regiment Museum

Hello, friends.

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be signing copies of Eagles over Husky at one of my favourite places in the world: The Royal Canadian Regiment Museum in London, Ontario!

I’m only a small part of what is sure to be a wonderful event to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Operation Husky, the Allied invasion of Sicily in the Second World War. The Royal Canadian Regiment landed in Pachino, Sicily on 10 July 1943 as part of the spearhead of the liberation of Europe.

Guests will hear from dignitaries, including:

  • Major-General (Ret.) Ivan Fenton, Colonel of the Royal Canadian Regiment
  • Flight Lieutenant (Ret.) Tom Hennessy, RAF veteran of Operation Husky
  • Captain (Ret.) Sheridan Atkinson, RCR veteran of Operation Husky
  • Gordon Joice (son of veteran Lieutenant J.E. Joice, who served in the RCR during Operation Husky)

All are invited for the book signing and to preview the museum’s Second World War section of the permanent gallery. The museum is hard at work revamping this gallery, and guests at this event will get a sneak peak of what is in store.

Date: Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Time: 11am to 12:30pm

Place: The RCR Museum, 701 Oxford St E, London, ON

Dress: Regimental/Air Force Association blazer (or summer dress as the temperatures may be), no medals, or civilian equivalent.
