Welcome Walter Gretzky!

| September 18, 2013

Walter Gretzky, father of The Great One, stopped by for a visit to the JBC this morning. This is his first trip to France to visit the Canadian battlefields from the First and Second World Wars. He was quite moved, especially after visiting the Canadian Cemetery at Dieppe. (Pictured here with one of our new guides, Vanessa. Needless to say, all the Canadians were thrilled to meet him!)
