Visit of the Gallant Family

| November 22, 2019

The Juno Beach Centre was pleased to welcome the Gallant family, who visited the JBC on two separate occasions to view items from their father and grandfather, Aubin Gallant, including his medals. In September, we welcomed Amy and Howie, and in October, Freddie DesRoches, Roger, Fred, Leonard and Verno. The items were generously donated to the museum in 2014 and are now part of our medals cabinet display. Thank you for your visit and donation!

Aubin Gallant landed on Juno Beach on D-Day with 18th Field Company, RCE. Learn more about his story of service.
