Remembrance Day has passed. Now remember this: Without a comprehensive
plan to re-equip the Canadian Armed Forces for the challenges that lie ahead,

Story by Mark Zuehlke

On July 10, 1943, the 1st Canadian Infantry Division—about 18,000 men—stormed ashore in Sicily as part of Operation Husky and filed into the island’s mountainous heart. The division had been the first Canadians to deploy to Britain in December 1939. Now they marched to battle. As they pushed toward Mount Etna, German resistance stiffened, but their unflagging tenacity prompted the Germans to nickname them the “Red Patch Devils” after their divisional shoulder patches.
