This Sten gun was given to Norm
We had it put on display at the main entrance of #4 Royal Canadian Legion. Incased with the Sten gun are medals of the 1st WW, 2nd WW and Korea. There are also two shell casings made into mugs from the 2nd WW. RCL Br #4 is also the home base for the Sgt Tommy
Prince MM Korea Veterans Association Unit 76. We thank Branch # 4 Royal Canadian Legion.

while a member of Unit 46 KVA Saskatoon and Unit 283 ANAVETS put this display together with the help of Lynne, his wife. It is on display at 283 ANAVETS 3584 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, Manitoba. We thank the ANAVETS President and Members for allowing us to display these memories of Korea and to Tony Lozinski for doing the frame work for us. It is enjoyed by all.

Original Flags of Unit 17 KVA 1999

While President of Unit 17 KVA Norm had this cabinet built to hold the original flags of Unit 17 KVA, the KVA Crest and 2 Lee Enfield Rifles that were used in Korea that have their barrels filled with lead and are used as a show piece. New flags and poles were purchased through profits from the convention funds. The original flags for the Unit are now on display at ANAVETS 303 Rockwood 341 Wilton St.
