I am the daughter of Cpl. Bill Hunter and wife Eileen ...
When our family returned
from Soest Germany and moved to Camp Picton, my Dad, Bill Hunter loaned his medals
to someone in the camp..he had 7 medals... When we left Picton after my Dad died
suddenly in the Camp Picton MIR my mother could not remember which Guardsman had
borrowed the medals. On a whim I am asking you to publish this email in the hopes
that someone or a family member will still have the medals... I believe the names
and service numbers were engraved on the edge of the medals... If those remaining
Guardsmen and families who read this would check I would be pleased..
My son is now
a member of the RCAF and is posted in Germany and I would like to mount them and
give them to him... I know they can be replaced but if I can find the originals I
I know it is 53 years too late but due to the Association folding I
am just asking...
I am the only remaining member of my family as my sister and my
Mom Eileen have passed on as well as my Dad...
This is a long shot but if family members
as well would take a look I would sincerely appreciated..Thank you in advance..Heather

Hello Gerry and Merry Christmas
I just want to say thank you for trying to help me
find my Dad's medals..
No, I did not find them as I guess realistically I didn't
expect to.. but it was worth a shot..too many Gdsm not with us anymore.. But I so
appreciate you doing what I asked... thank you..
I will have a replacement set mounted
for my son and send them to him as he is posted to Geilenkirchen Germany.. lucky
me I visited him in October and he, and his wife and my Grandaughter we drove to
Soest one lovely Saturday.. and spent the day walking around the town enjoying sites
I remember a a little girl.. very emotional but so glad I had the opportunity to
go.. thank you Royal Canadian Air Force..
I was going thru some things of my Mom's and came across a picture and a score sheet
from 1st. Canadian Hockey team when they played the Denmark and a pic of the hotel
spthey stayed in.. my mom kept almost everything I think..
I have attached them and
if you want to use them on fb or the Guards Association site, please do.. if not
that is fine too...
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and good health and happiness
for 2017.. May the Guards always live on.. I am very proud of what my Dad was and
what he did in his military career from age 18 to 41.. he was very proud to be part
of the Guards..
I have a friend from our summer trailor park who was a Guardsman in
his youth, Lloyd Tryon
Who was in Petawawa, Germany and Picton the same time as us
and just found out a year or two ago while talking to him... also in our subdivision
there is a man whose last name is Carver and he was also a Guardsman at that same
time as Lloyd.. funny what a small world we live in.. never know who you will meet..
Sincerely... Heather Weese (Hunter) , Trenton, Ontario
