Lest we forget

Came across this during a road trip in Saskatchewan August 12, 2017. This is a memorial marker for two people who enlisted to fight in World War II and never made it. 

P.J. Haley, a student from Australia, and J.D. Douglas, a Canadian flying instructor, died in a training accident 12-2-1945. They were part of the British Empire Air Training Program. This is just off Highway 21 south of Unity, Saskatchewan.


  1. Very interesting. Did you ever see that movie "For the Moment" that was made with Russell Crowe about the British Commonwealth Air Training Program on the prairies? It was made about 25 years ago and is worth watching, if you can find it anymore, I don't know.

    1. Not aware of that movie. Will look into it.

  2. Debra, thanks, I'll look into that movie, too.

  3. For the Moment
    The whole movie(free; VHS ver)
