We Remember with Gordon Schottlander

First Published:

British born Gordon Schottlander was a commissioned officer on June 6th, 1944 and that day, at 18-years-old, he landed on Juno Beach and fought bravely alongside Canadian soldiers as part of the D-Day invasion that would lead to the successful end of the Second World War. He later came to Canada with his wife Colleen, building a big family in Burlington where many memories were created. And this morning Gordon joined us to share the memories from that day.
