Got the compendium today, and while paging through it my eyes fell on p.118, where the assertion is made that "Smokey" Smith was the only Canadian soldier to receive the Victoria Cross in the whole war.

That's rather insulting to the other TEN Canadian Army recipients (not including one Canadian serving with the British Army in Burma, and four serving in the Navy and Air Force).

I know this series isn't big on history, but that page is presented as genuine biographical material, and the facts are not hard to find.

Shame on you, Devil Pig! shake

Wow I didn't know that. I appreciate you pointing that out.

I see that you have a Canada Badge. Did you receive your pledge in Canada and if so could you say what province your from?

I am from Grande Prairie / Clairmont Alberta. Maybe I could get it this week! Excitement abound!

I know you won't want to hear this, but there was no pledge. I ordered it from Meeplemart!

Hi all, I'm Clem from DPG.
Sorry for the mistake. Obviously we didn't want to upset our Canadian friends. Who wants to do that? Our informations were not true, so we'll fix it in the next edition. Once again, please, excuse us for this mistake.
Clem

The 12th SS Panzer Division didn't seem to mind trying to upset Canadians. You don't seem to be anything like them though.

Maybe I'll start a thread to account for any errors found?
