Although we had a list of 17 soldiers, only one was listed on the Cenotaph outside the Borden-Legion Carleton, George Preston SMITH of Kinkora, who was with the North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment.
Their objective was to clear German forces from the area between the Rhine and Maas rivers, east of the German/Dutch frontier, in the Rhineland.(See https://books.google.com/books/about/North_Shore_New_Brunswick_Regiment.html? id=Iz7WAAAAMAAJ) Before returning to place flags at the rest of the known soldiers from PEI, we stopped by a memorial marking the route on February 8, 1945 where soldiers marched into Germany on their way from Groesbeek, as part of .This was the northern part of an Allied pincer movement that took place between February 8 and March 11, 1945 during the final stages of the Second World War.It’s likely true, as one prerequisite that Canadian Officers had in selecting land for the cemetery was to have a view of Germany.In a Dutch reference we read that construction on the cemetery began in 1945 by six Canadian soldiers.
