Response to medal sold- CWM

Dear Mr. Roy,

Thank you very much for your e-mail. We are currently discussing the variety of possibilities to make the Robert Shankland VC accessible to Canadians. In the short-term, we will be displaying the VC here at the War Museum as a new acquisition.

Your suggestion about the use of our website is a very good one, and I will ask staff to explore this idea.

I concur with you wholeheartedly that we need to increase our efforts to reach out beyond the National Capital Region.
