The new banner picture on my blog page is a test, of sorts, for people, especially for those Conservatives* who claim to have a real interest in the military.
It shows some of the real heroes (and one heroine) of the Second World War ~ of course the list is incomplete and idiosyncratic, too. For example, it doesn’t show any VC winners because I’m using “hero” in a slightly different sense: I mean “war winners,” in many cases, not just brave men and women.
Can you name them all? Can you name any of them?
There’s no prize for the best answer … except the satisfaction in knowing that you are both well informed about higher order military/defence matters and Canadian history.
* I single out Conservatives because so many of them say they support the military but I fear that too few actually understand much about it.
