"WE WILL REMEMBER THEM"

The Men & Women of Erin & District

Click Poster for Details

“It is a staggering 360 pages of the stories of the Fallen, those who Volunteered and the local military local history from the Loyalist days of the late 1700's to Afghanistan including what was like here on "Home Front" during the two World Wars. It has been a work in progress for a decade and a half.” – Jay Mowat, Erin Radio

“I read it all last night and today. Fabulous! Fabulous! Thank You! – Debbi Scott, Erin ON

I read it from cover to cover and document in the margins all family connections. We will place this book with other family history so future generation can follow our connections to the township and the military service. Thanks for all your work - Bill Cunningham - Southampton ON

"What a terrific book for me to have.  You have created a new and very special link with the past for the whole Erin community.  I can now connect so much more easily with the friends and families I have come to know over the past 50 years.  Thank you so much." - Jim Sparks, Erin ON

 “Your book, "We Will Remember Them", is an impressive piece of research and a fine read. As the child of Dutch immigrants, I have a much better knowledge of the great effort by Canadians that went into their liberation in 1945 after reading it. I love how you wove the life of the Village of Erin into the military narrative and global events. All the individual stories of the fighting men are riveting reads. You have really honoured Erin and District's service men and women in your book!  Thank you for writing it. It will be a go to historical resource for generations to come! - My parents did not tell us much about their war years besides telling us to eat all the food on our plate as they had to go to the compost pile to dig up old potato peels to eat.” - Jane Vandervliet – Erin ON
