This Tribute Profile contains available biographical information on one of the Canadians who died on Juno Beach on 6 June 1944. The profile also recognizes the individual or organization who generously sponsored this soldier, and includes a message of thanks and remembrance for their sacrifice. This information is available in the soldier’s native tongue and has been compiled by the Lest We Forget program and, in some cases, through the generosity of individuals connected with the soldiers.  Due to the inconsistency of historical records and the sparse availability of first-hand witnesses, we know more about some than others. If you would like to contribute any material or help in our efforts to present the biographies in both French and English, please contact: jbca@junobeach.org.

Ce portrait contient des informations biographiques relatives à l’un des Canadiens qui sont morts sur la plage Juno, le 6 juin 1944. Il porte également mention de la personne ou de l’organisation qui a généreusement parrainé ce soldat, ainsi qu’un message de remerciement en souvenir de son sacrifice. Ces informations sont disponibles dans la langue maternelle du soldat et ont été compilées par le programme Lest We Forget et, dans certains cas, grâce à la générosité des personnes liées aux soldats. En raison de la disparité des documents historiques et des rares témoins de l’époque, nous ne disposons pas de la même quantité d’information sur tous les soldats.
