Toronto. Being a small country (population), and a relatively new country, we seldom see our heros get recognition. Sgt Thomson is a fine example. The Canadian Film & Photo Unit website recounts many tales of the Canadian photographers who recorded WW2 overseas.

On February 28,  2022 this site told the story of Sgt Thompson of Regina courtesy of his daughter and grand daughter. Have a look at the story and those of others who were part of the CFP Unit.

A deep felt thank you to my good friend and fellow photo-history enthusiast, George Dunbar, for discovering the Canadian Film & Photo Unit website article on Sgt Thompson and sharing it with us along with the newspaper article below.
