My un­cle, Ge­orge Clif­ford Arm­strong, was born in Den­zil, Sask., in 1914. He en­listed in Jan­uary 1942 and saw ac­tive duty in France, Ger­many, Bel­gium and Hol­land as a sig­nal­man. He re­turned home in 1945.

In 1980, he was one of the many sol­diers who re­ceived tulip bulbs and a lovely thank you let­ter from a fam­ily in Hol­land for his part in the lib­er­a­tion of the Nether­lands. Ge­orge was ac­tive in the Van­cou­ver Le­gion un­til his death in 2002.
