A Rockin’ Response Donald Lugers article “A Rockin’ Tribute” (October-November 2019) pays homage to the B-29 Superfortress. In one of the pictures (right), Donald points to the tail guns of this plane. The sight of these tail guns immediately triggered a memory from an experience I had during the final days of World War II. I was living in Amsterdam; there was no food left and people were literally starving in the streets. It was called the Hunger Winter of 1944. The war was ending, much of the Netherlands was liberated but the western part was still in German hands. Permission was granted to the Allied Forces by the Germans for food drops at Schiphol Airport. “Operation Manna” was launched and many bombers took part. The first drop was done by…

contributor spotlight

MEGAN LORENZ Based in Toronto, Megan is a wildlife photographer who was able to turn her passion for the outdoors into her career. Megan believes that intensive knowledge of a species behaviour, traits and habitat is paramount to successful wildlife photography and has an unending amount of patience, which helps her in the field waiting for the ideal moment. This is demonstrated to perfection in her photo essay Winter Royalty (page 8), about bonding with and photographing a Canada lynx. Among her many awards, she is a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal recipient for her contribution to Canadian wildlife photography.

thanks a million!

Before you dive into your current issue—and a wonderful issue it is!—I’d like to take a moment to chat about the shiny, new “call out” on our front cover, announcing that Our Canada has “more than one million readers.” According to the Fall 2019 study conducted by Vividata, the organization which tracks readership and related metrics for the Canadian magazine industry, Our Canada is read by 1.1 million people across the country. Factor in our digital audience and that number climbs to almost 1.5 million. Those are impressive stats, no doubt, but more importantly, they are a testament to the loyalty, high level of engagement and willingness to spread the word about Our Canada that you continue to bestow upon our publication. Although hitting the one-million readership mark will be news to…

CANADIAN ARMY OCCUPATION FORCE “Bill” Walker was born in Brightview, Alta., on November 13, 1923. He joined up on June 10, 1944, and was originally assigned to a tank crew with the Armoured Corps. Because of a health issue, he was assigned to be a truck driver/mechanic with the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. “When they were forming the Occupation Army, you needed 50 points to be sent home. I had 49. I was glad of that actually.” He was sent to Europe and stationed in Belgium in 1944. While there, he was made a member of the Canadian Army Occupation Force, and was discharged in 1946. After his war service, and teaching for several years, Bill worked and retired on his farm in Alberta. To view video interviews with Canadian vets, visit…
