Buried Treasure //
On July 6th, 2014 while metal detecting in Northern Ontario Canada, I was given the privilege of recovering a lost Sterling Silver Royal Canadian Air Force Birks Memorial Bar presented to the family of a fallen soldier during the Second World War.
71 long years later, after nearly six months of research, I'm honoured to finally introduce you to:
Flight Officer Donald Cameron Walker.
The 27 year old, only son of Robert and Ethel May Walker of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Canada, was numbered among those who, at the call of King and Country, left all that was dear to him, endured hardness, faced danger, and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice, giving up his own life that others might live in freedom.
Please join with me in my new found duty to ensure that his name not be forgotten.
