Remembrance Day Memories – World War II

War-time memories from World War II as told by my grandfather, Veteran George Rouse. This video was recorded in 2006 at the Corn Hill United Baptist Church in New Brunswick for their annual Remembrance Day service. George recounts his wartime injuries, including how he was shot in the shoulder and walked a mile to the First Aid station for treatment.



The second video was recorded in 2007 at the Corn Hill Community Hall in New Brunswick for their annual Remembrance Day service. George recounts the importance of letters from home while at war. At the end, George is presented with a gift of appreciation from the congregation. The 103-year old church burnt down in a fire 7 weeks before the video was taken (http://www.cbc.ca/canada/new-brunswick/ story/2007/09/18/nb-oldchurchburns.html) . The congregation fashioned a stained glass cross from one of the windows that couldn’t be saved.
