    PPCLI stood alongside 3RAR at Kapyong in Korea and both were awarded the Distinguished Unit Citation, later renamed to the Presidential Unit Citation. The US Company A, 72nd Heavy Tank Battalion were also decorated.

    My dad and his brothers fought in WW2.
    My British mother's brother was a Spitfire pilot. I have his RAF watch:

    There is a cemetery on my property with a couple of veterans buried here.

    This gentlemen was in an all-black battalion in WW1.

    The First Pioneer Battalion was stood up January 1, 1918.
    As you can see, he died that October. I have no idea what the circumstances were.
