NW BC War Veterans

British Columbia, Canada

For God and Country
Whether by choice, chance or circumstance,
These Gave Their Lives

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields the Poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though Poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.
Author- John McCrae

Ode of Rememberance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
from the poem “For the Fallen” by Robert Laurence Binyon

I will gladly add any names you know of here, if they served and are from the Terrace Area

Clarence Pearson Dunphy

An addition to your NW BC Vets page. My Grandfather, Clarence Pearson Dunphy who lived in Terrace BC from sometime in the 1950's to his death in February 2002. Initially, I believe, he was in a militia unit but then enlisted in the Canadian Army December 16th 1940 and was assigned to the 14th A.A. Battery in Halifax, Nova Scotia. As he enlisted as General Service (GS), he was sent overseas in July 18th 1944 to the U.K. and then was landed in Northwest Europe (France) November 18th 1944. Upon arrival in Europe, he was re-assigned as a 2nd on the Bren, 'A' Company, Queens Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada (Rgt), 6th Infantry Brigade of the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division and fought in Holland and Germany. He was wounded February 5th 1945 when the jeep he was travelling in hit a mine or unexploded demolition charge (his explanation) during an attack. He spent the next month recovering in hospital before being returned to duty in March. He was then returned to Canada in April before being discharged in May 16th 1945. He was the recipient of: The 1939-45 Star awarded for six months service on active operations between Sep39 and May 1945. The France and Germany Star for service in France/Holland /Germany between June 1944-March 1945. The Defence Medal for service in the U.K. 1939-1945. Canadian Volunteer Service Medal (CVSM) with Bar for volunteering for overseas service and serving at least 60 days outside Canada. The War Medal 39-45 awarded for 28 days between September 1939 and September 1945. The sources I have are his service records and army paybook. Submitted by Troy Ritter, Nov 2020
