    This morning I read an extract from Wilfred Smith's book 'Code Word Canloan'. It mentioned that 673 Canadian officers served as Canloan's, of which 128 were killed.

    Lieutenant W.A. Harvie & Captain Phillip H. Turner.

    canloan.jpg

    Both Harvie and Turner fought at Arnhem with the 4th Parachute Brigade, 1st Airborne Division (British Army), and Turner was awarded the American Distinguished Service Cross.

    Only these two CANLOAN officers out of the twenty that served at Arnhem managed to escape. Harvie and Turner both served with 2nd Battalion, The South Staffordshire Regiment and both were evacuated across the Rhine before the battle ended.

    Market Garden
    A total of thirty-two CANLOAN officers were made prisoners during the war, more than half of them during the fighting at Arnhem in September 1944. In fact, the greatest single concentration of the 673 CANLOAN officers was in the 1st Airlanding Brigade of the 1st Airborne Division, which boasted 47 Canadian officers on its rolls (23 serving in the 7th Battalion, The King's Own Scottish Borderers, 13 in 2nd Battalion, The South Staffordshire Regiment, and 11 in the 1st Battalion, The Border Regiment.) Eight of the KOSB battalion's 27 platoons were commanded by Canadians. Three Canadians also served in the parachute units of 1st Airborne Division, two with the 1st Battalion, The Parachute Regiment, and Lieutenant James McKenna who was killed with 11 Para on 22 September.

    Only one Canadian, Lieutenant Leo Heaps, was with the 1st Parachute Brigade on 17 September, serving in a supernumerary capacity with the headquarters of the 1st Battalion of The Parachute Regiment. Heaps was captured on 25 September though he subsequently escaped and worked with the Dutch Resistance, earning a Military Cross.
