Our History


Mr. George Albert Ravenhill VC, was an English recipient of the Victoria Cross. One of eight men whose VC's involuntarily forfeited. Sadly he fell on hard times, and his children were sent to foster families in the USA & Canada. Lest we Forget!

Mr. Will Walks, a Canadian WW1 Veteran (Veterinarian) returned to France post war with his wife (Francaise). Working as a veterinarian North of Paris he recovered 30+ allied air men (WW2) who parachuted into local farmers fields. Decorated by the French authorities for efforts supporting 'La Résistance'. Respect!
