Default Wyn van der Schee

Forum member and long time militaria collector and researcher Wyn van der Schee passed away last week after a lifetime of service to his country and community. I have attached a copy of the order of service from his funeral which was held this afternoon in Kingston, Ontario.

Wyn will be missed. A real gentleman and serious researcher of Canadian military history and military insignia.
Thanks for posting Phil.

Thanks Phil, sad to hear.

It was Wyn's articles on the cloth titles of the Royal Canadian Artillery that got me collecting them and researching RCA unit lineages as well.
