Op FAUST 2020: Commemoration of the 75thAnniversary
Canadian Logistics troops played a significant role in the liberation of the Netherlands and to highlight their contribution, the Canadian Forces Logistics Association, in conjunction with the RCLS and “Keep Them Rolling” aDutch grassroots vehicle preservation society, has taken the lead in planning and organizing a “battlefield tour” in the Netherlands. It will be an extraordinary opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of those logisticians who came before us and to take part in what should undoubtedly be a great lesson in history.
The tour is scheduled to take place between 29 April and 8 May 2020 and includes visits to important Canadian battlefields in the Netherlands, monuments, museums, and Commonwealth War Cemeteries. Participants will also attend the Canadian ceremony at Wageningen onLiberation Day and participate in the “Keep Them Rolling” convoys. All planned activities are led by the experienced military historians and veterans of “Fields of Fire tours” and include all meals, travel by coach bus in the Netherlands, and all accommodations.
