Veteran Ed Carter-Edwards
The GPL is honoured to welcome veteran Ed Carter-Edwards, a WW II RCAF member. Shot down over occupied France and captured by the Gestapo during an attempted escape, he and 168 Allied airmen were sent to Buchenwald concentration camp to be executed as spies and saboteurs. Mr. Carter-Edwards was one of over 150 airmen smuggled to safety by members of the German Air Force.
Join us at this free drop-in event to hear Mr. Carter-Edwards present a compelling firsthand account of his WWII experience.
