Private Gérard Doré of Quebec is considered the youngest Allied soldier who died on the Western Front, just one month short of his seventeenth birthday. Born on August 29, 1927, he left home at age 15 and enlisted in the Royal Canadian Artillery by lying about his age. About one month after D-Day, his regiment landed in Normandy and was assigned to the front. This brave young lad was killed in action and is buried in the Canadian War Cemetery at Bretteville-sur-Width in Normandy.

DAVID VIVIAN CURRIE VC Currie had about two hundred men and maybe a dozen M4 Sherman tanks at his disposal. He didn’t have access to artillery, couldn’t call in air strikes, and, if he’d had any actual reconnaissance of the area, he’d have known that the town was defended by a detachment of the 2nd Panzer Division that outnumbered the Canadians by a factor of three. Major David Vivian Currie unflinchingly told his men to line up and attack.
