OP HUSKY AND THE RCAF
RCAF
On July 10th 1943, Canadian soldiers landed at Pachino, Sicily, marking the beginning of the Sicilian Campaign. While this campaign is little known, "Operation Husky" represented the first independent role for Canadian soldiers in the Second World War. They fought with courage and knocked the pins out of the German defences in Sicily. Their success came at a cost of over 560 men in honour of those who fought and those who fell. We are organizing a memorial capaign for the operation's 70th anniversary. Our campaign begins on the beaches of Pachino on July 10th, 2013 and features two main ceremonies.
