It Is More Than A Sweater

from the Edmonton Sun,
"I never saw that guard again, but I'll never forget how his face lit up when he saw that Smoke Eaters crest. "We were liberated from the prison camp on VE-Day, and when I got back to Trail, I still had the sweater with me. I wore it until it was falling to pieces, then I cut off the crest and gave it to Jimmy Morris for a keepsake. "I think my old German guard would have liked that."
A great story....read on
