War Amps rereleases five films

Dear Editor:
I am writing on behalf of The War Amps Operation Legacy, in which members of the Association’s Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program pass the NEVER AGAIN! message from war amputee veterans to the younger generation.
This November 11th marks the 90th anniversary of the end of the First World War, which cost the lives of more than 60,000 young Canadians. To commemorate this milestone, The War Amps is re-releasing five internationally award-winning documentaries from its Military Heritage Series.
In A Vimy Veteran Remembers, war amputee Perce Lemmon describes life as a young soldier in this pivotal battle. The Blue Puttees tells the remarkable story of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, which was nearly wiped out in the Battle of Beaumont Hamel.
War Amps members talk about surviving the First World War in If Ye Break Faith, while In Flanders Fields tells of the sacrifices of Ypres, the Somme, Vimy Ridge, and Passchendaele. Finally, No Man’s Land tells of Canadian artist Mary Riter Hamilton, commissioned in 1919 by The War Amps to travel to the battlefields of Europe to paint the scenes of postwar destruction.
Produced by War Amps CEO Cliff Chadderton, all are available at a cost-recovery price (DVD or VHS) by calling toll-free 1-800-250-3030 or at waramps.ca.

Sincerely,
Yousef Kadoura
Operation Legacy Member, Ottawa
