Hi there....new here.. my interest is two fold... from a genealogical side, and from a personal side. My father served with the Seaforth Highlanders in Italy beginning with the invasion in July '43, right thru' to Holland, then transferred to the PPCLI and stayed until March '46. He had two brothers that served there also, PPCLI and South Sask Reg. In addition, my mothers cousin was a member of the Devils Brigade, dying at Monte Cassino. I was privileged to be in Ortona, with my daughter, in November'08, to attend the 65th anniversary ceremonies with 1200 canadian students. Hope to find others with interets like mine!!
