The Vimy Ridge Memorial is Canada’s largest monument outside the country. NI men served in Canadian forces in both World Wars. Twenty one are recorded in today’s Roll. James Heatherington from Ballygawley served with Canadian Infantry. At the end of a visit home he died on this day in 1916 in an accident at a Belfast railway station. Joseph Breadon from Fivemiletown also served with Canadian Infantry dying in his adopted country in 1920 from war wounds. Harry Crawford from Ballymoney, Thomas Lucas from Moy who died in 1943 serving in the air forces both had Canadian links. Today’s Veteran Hugh Hunter was living at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, when he joined the Canadian Field Artillery. His parents lived in Portstewart. He is commemorated on Portstewart Presbyterian Church’s Roll of Honour and the PCI’s RH.
