Edmund Lionel Hurd came from a military heritage and community built on a foundation of trust, ethics and caring for family and neighbours. His life experience would be completely contrasted by the atrocities that he and his comrades experienced as POWs at the hands of the Japanese in prison and labour camps. This story captures the human side of Captain E L Hurd, Battalion Quartermaster, Royal Rifles of Canada.
A presentation by his son Frederick E. Hurd will reveal who he was, where he came from, and how he came home to a changed world where he found the courage again to adapt, and to defend and hang on to his dignity while he strove to rebuild his life.
Event begins at 7:30pm ET.
