Sergeant Willard Parker Minard


Sergeant Minard is second from the left on the front row, the only Canadian present. The photograph appears to have been taken in the aftermath of an investiture by Field Marshal Montgomery (sitting in the centre of the middle row), during the Normandy campaign, possibly 16th July 1944. Major-General Gale sits to the left of Montgomery. Lance-Sergeant William Irving MM (3rd Parachute Squadron) is second from the right on the middle row. Copyright: Matthew Catlow.
