Art Bell, Hanno Spoelstra and another 1CACR veteran
While Art Bell climbs on effortlessly, Hanno Spoelstra (centre) speaks with another veteran , believed to be Captain Vern Murray of The Royal Montreal Regiment.
At the reception following the ceremony, it was striking to see how a healthy dose of interservice rivalry was kept alive by the veterans. For example, foot soldiers commented that the only thing those stupid tanks did was to attract enemy fire, while tankers were of course convinced that they were the ones that came to the rescue of the infantry!
