Don served in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, D-Day, and France and was shot down, wounded, and taken prisoner in Arnhem, Holland. Repatriated in 1945, he spent months convalescing in England. Don then spent three years with the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR), the occupation force in Germany, before returning to London as a volunteer driver for the 1948 Olympics in his home town of Wembley. A member of the British Legion for twenty years, Don has also been a member of the Canadian Legion for the last forty-five years and is a member of the Cowichan Branch #53.
