Hello all. My father’s name is Ignatz Kenneth Weber. He either went by Iggy or Ken. Anyway my father was a queens own and very proud to be queens own. He told us lots of stories. I lost him back in 2019. Just curious if anyone out there remembers him that could tell me stories or even has a picture to share.
Saw your message on the QOR websight great to hear from you and so sad about your Dad . Your Dad and I did basic training in 76 Platoon Currie Barracks Calgary in 59. 76 Platoon the best platoon ever, and I am sure your Dad would agree. When we pastout from depot and went to the 1st Bn and where put on a drivers course. In the fall of 1960 we where off to Germany. Your dad ended up in transport Pl and I ended up in Support Coy 4.2 mortors. Did he just do 3 years ? In 1917 or 18 we where in the area and we had coffee and I am so happy now I got to see him again. I am from Moose Jaw
and there where about 7 Sask boys in 76 Pl no wonder it was the best. I will have he’s name put in the last post list.Once again I am happy to have served with in him.

Check out these recently digitized films from 1960 (2) and 1971:
The songs from the era of the Great War might interest you, and most recently the Toronto Valour Ensemble recorded a choral album called Sacrifice and Solace (which we hope you will find online easily), in the memory of those who served, and paid the supreme sacrifice, and the families they left behind. Lest we forget.
