Paratrooper Movie

I have been asked to assist in the setting up of interviews for a movie on the history of Canadian Paratroopers (info attached).  The movie has the support of MGen Pitts and Jan de Vries of 1 Can Para, amongst others.

The producer will be attending the Airborne Luncheon on 17 April, and will then be conducting interviews on the 18th and 19th of April in the Officers' Mess of The Queen's Own Rifles at 130 Queen Street East.  He is interested in talking to all paratroopers from 1 Can Para and FSSF to the present day.

I have attached an interview schedule, and ask that you consider making yourself available to be interviewed.  Select a time slot and let me know at (416) 344-5191,
