Introduction: Thanks to YouTube and other sources there are many videos and still images of various theatres of war, and many concern significant events during WW2 in which Canadians in Combined Operations were involved. Here I provide links to two videos related to the 1943 invasion of Sicily.

Please note: The above photo and the videos presented may not be concerned with the same troops at the same location.
