Honours appropriate

I thank and congratulate the Salmon Arm Observer newspaper, for issuing the supplement honouring our veterans.

I thank and congratulate the Salmon Arm Observer newspaper, for issuing the 12-page pictorial supplement honouring our veterans, with a full colour front page.

Of that section, my submission and particular interest was my relatives on page 11 – F.O. Alfred Swainson and L’FT  Roy Swainson, double cousins, of the undersigned, whose surnames were anglicized, and also cousin, Flight Lt.  Wallace Thorvaldson. As recognized by many, it is certainly fitting that we honour and recognize our veterans’ valour in  placing themselves in harm’s way, and real life-threatening danger, to win our peace.
