I grew up just down the country road from Mr. Wilson. Not until this past Remembrance Day have I seen these images and been able to see the man in uniform. This images to the left taken in England in 1943 is the one that I can really see the man I knew. A happy, humble farmer with a squinting smile that always came out during the 4th Line Picnics. Sergeant James Wilson was a member of the Elgin Regiment and was awarded several medals for his service including: The Battle Of Britain Star, The France and Germany Star, The Defence Medal, The Canadian Volunteer Services Award, and the War Medal from 1939-1945. Jim’s wife Wilhelmine was in attendance yesterday at the services, watching as her Great Grandson Owen read a poem he wrote for Remembrance Day 2010, 67 years after this picture was taken.
