As a Canadian

I note that Canadians were often given the dirty jobs. Dieppe, then Juno beach on D-Day, and facing one of the most ferocious Panzer groups a couple of days later, then slogging through the polders of the Netherlands while the Yanks got to bowl through Paris.

See also Ypres etc in WWI. The WWI memorial to the Canadian dead is surrounded by trees: the trees of Canada planted there so the air above their heads is filled with the scent of home.
