Here we have a photo collage of Canadian soldiers in peacekeeper duties.
The idea, one of the best ever thought of by a Canadian, dates to the Suez Crisis and was put forward by the foreign minister of the time, Lester Pearson, later to become Prime Minister of Canada. His initiative won him the Nobel Peace Prize. Using neutral soldiers as peacekeepers has been a concept since, and often is a hazardous duty.
This is a reproduction of a cafe in Cyprus, site of a long peacekeeping mission, with photographs and details of the mission on the walls.
This particularly striking painting is Paphos Gate, C-73, Observation Post, Cyprus, by Real Gauthier.

And this field gun is from the reserve units. We carry on here tomorrow.
