Comments: Was scrolling thru my association's guest book and saw an entry by Roly Soper from Calgary. Was happy to see that our friends up north are remembering the "forgotten war". I Was there l95l-52, First Sgt Btry B, 555 FA Bn, 5 Rgt Combat Team. That was my second tour in Korea. My first was occupation l946-48. Prior to that I had 2 1/2 years in N. Africa and Italy, War II. Sort of finished things off with a tour in Nam l967-68 and finally retired Command Sergeant Major in 1975, with 33yrs active duty. Everyone take care, have a Merry Christmas and a safe and sane New Year and keep your fingers crossed that we, down here, don't screw things up in Afghanistan and the surrounding area.

Comments: To all Canadian vets of the Korean War: The Dominion Institute's Memory Project, an educational initiative to link veterans, educators, and Canadian students in classrooms and over the internet, is focusing this year on Canada's contribution to the Korean War. We need veterans to tell their story of this conflict to Ontario students whose only opportunity to understand Canada's role in Korea will be face to face interaction with a veteran. Please consider sharing your experience with today's youth, so that they can fully appreciate the importance of Canada's military contribution and history. Contact me at 416-368-2111 or by email; and visit the Memory Project website to see the project's Phase One which dealt with WWII. Help us battle Canada's growing culture of forgetfulness!

Comments: It's great to see this book in operation. I'm sure it will allow a lot of fellows to locate past mates. Thanks Betty and Roly for getting it together. I served with 2 Bn Black Watch of Canada and I would hope that more members of the Watch will respond to this book. As Treasurer of KVAA it is good to know that Canada and Australia are now twinned. If any Cdn vets have any Australian mates they would like to locate, I would be more than happy to try and reunite them. Best of Luck to All.

Comments: Just a comment to let people know how great this site has turned out to be for me. For years I have been trying to get some info on Mel nixon who was my section leader in Korea in 1952 on hill355 & the pheasant ,& Hook. I have just heard from another Royal who informed me about Mel's whereabouts.That Royal just made my life very complete because as you Vets of the korean " WAR " know buddies Like Mel Nixon come into a man's life very rarely . And once there we never forget what we once were and had been..So once again I would like to thank that Royal. And GOd Bless you " NICK ",wherever you are. Your Buddy til death . George Hunt [Chico]

Comments: I came across this web site while on a search for help for my father.Willaim iam Stanley Calder who was a private in the Canadian Army . His regimental number is SM18204, Theaters of service Canada, Far East Con't Europe with an "honourable release" as his original discharge papers indicate. As i sit here in my home holding my fathers papers in my hands as i search desperatly to find him help, i find myself so confused on where to turn for help. My father was second position on the gun and recently has lost is hearing. They say it is possible he may have a brain tumour. He fought for me in one way and now i have to fight for him, he needs hearing aids and i had recently filled out some papers for DVA to which he apparently makes a $ 100.00 too much, they say i can appeal this. I could if i knew how to appeal. What i was looking for was a website to find help, for someone who knows the system. I find myself sad now because i cant believe for those men and women who went to Korea and fought for us now have to fight for themselves. Does anyone have any suggestions on who to talk to because the people at Veterns affairs in Victoria dont seem to really care. Please e-mail me with information and in the same respect if you happen to remember my father i would also like to hear from you.

Comments: During the Reunion in Ottawa last summer I was talking to some members of the PPCLI who were in Korea.They were asking me if i knew certain people who had won MM's in Korea.I do not know these soldiers last names but if you remember the talk we had, I now have complete list of MM winners and they can contact me.If the Association wants the list to send in the next news letter to branches,I will supply. A great site you have here. Sincerely, Len Delaney

He embarked to serve in the Korean War on March 26, 1952 and returned March 30, 1953. He served with the 1 RCR. He also served in Vietnam with the ICCS January 27,1973 to July. He was a dedicated soldier and a very proud serviceman. Any info would certainly be appreciated. Many thanks

The ship had about 1200 Americans and 700 Canadians with bunks for about 1100. These men were the first Canadian troops to return from Korea,Princess Pat light Infantry. We landed the Canadians at Vancouver, as I remember, then U.S. troops landed at Seattle. Can someone on that trip fill in details, like dates depart Japan and arrive Vancouver. Name of ship. Remember the green sausages for breakfast after lying in an aluminum pan overnight ? Best to all of you, this is the best site I have visited for military organizations. Tim Splan

Comments: I have neber served in war or really seen a real war, I have only gone through life with stories of war and movies and text in books. My grandfather was an amazing man I only know this from stories told to me by my mother, he passed on before I was born. My grandfather served in both British and Canadian units retiring with the rank of RSM with the Cameron Hilanders. His name was Kenneth Affleck. I have respect for all vetrans and for what they fought for , it makes me mad how some people disrespect what tey did for us. I come from a military family and I myself have served with the 2701 Princess Patrica's Canadian Light Infantry Army Cadet Core. For the short time I was there I gained alot of respect for the military. Although I know I have no place in the military in my future I still support it's causes greatly and pray for my brother when he goes over seas and my friends that were in cadets with me who joined the PPCLI reg force and the malica units. This long message has a simple purpose...... Thank you soldiers of the past , your blood , sweat and tears will never be forgotten...and thank you soldiers today and forever in the future , let;s hope one day that you won't have to lay on the line. If anyone has information about my granfather Kenneth Affleck please E-mail me ...Thank You

Here is the site address: http://classiccars.net/classic /1795.html I would very much like to be able to purchase and restore this classic CANADIAN vehicle, but I do not have the means to do so. I would be interested in networking with anyone that is interested in forming a group to facilitate such a project. The idea would be to dedicate this vehicle to the memory of all Canadian Veterans (Focusing on Korean War Vets) by using this bus as a mini-mobile museum and to rent the bus out to Veteran's Units and so on, to cover its operating costs. It would be a same to see this vehicle go to waste.

Comments: I would like to urge all vets to e-mail , snail mail to any in the Federal govt, to bring to their attention teh dispicable travel allowance vets get for medical travel by car.About 5 years ago gas was about 57 cents a litre we got 24 cents per km.It was at that time reduced to 11.5 cents per km. Now gas is about 73 cents per litre and last july the allowance was raised to 13.5 cents per Km. I have found out that MPs get 38.5 cents per km. Where is the reasoning behind such thinking. Should we be considered that much less deserving than an MP. Mny vets payed the ultimate orice for that MP. Kelly

Comments: I would like to make a comment for all vets about DVA policy regarding tarvel allowance on a per km basis.I live in a small town and must travel to Saskatoon for anything other that the basic in haelth care. About 5 years ago DVA reimbursed for tevael by private car 24 cents per km.Gas at that time was about 48 to 50 cents per litre.Then the rate was cut to 11.5 cents per km. Now Gas is (in Rosetown) 72.9 cents per litre and DVA in their generosity raised the per km. rate to 13 cents . I can't find out what the federal rate is but the provincial rate is 32 cents per km.I t does not take a math whiz to see where that leaves us. I would urge All vets to send e- mail or letter to to minister in charge of DVA. He does not even acknowledge my queries,. Kelly

Comments: Thank you and congratulations for a really professional web site. I served with the Welch Regiment in Korea, from Nov.'51 for a year. vacated the Hook to be replaced by the Canadians, moved onto 355 where we heard the Hook had received some violent attention, sorry about the lads you lost there,(but for the grace...)They made a brave defence, inflicting heavy losses on the attacking force, they gave no ground. You can be proud of them, Heroes all. After leaving Korea I had the good fortune to be posted as staff to the Ebisu leave Camp Tokio, Where I met and made good freinds with a one Doug Topping of the RCR, but never kept his Home details, Regards Charles
