Forgot to thank you for this.
A veteran of our regiment, who was awarded the MM for actions in April of 1945, passed away just recently. A family member contacted the regimental museum with information of the obituary, and pointed with pride to an article in the Maple Leaf that told the story of the MM action in detail. More interesting was the fact that the MM was not gazetted until some time after the article came out; the newspaper man simply thought it was an interesting story - probably got the word from a company commander or officer who had already recommended the troop for an award and suggested it as a byline.
Was very interesting also to see the regiment's name mentioned; the public newspapers back home seemed to always be more vague with unit descriptions. Some real gems in those stories, and matching up the Maple Leaf account with his award document, does seem to be some measure of accuracy in the reporting.
