I am planting for my Grandfather’s, Robert Speirs and Lester Christensen

Lester Christensen was the first person in Lethbridge to enlist and he was in service until the very end of the war. Lester was primarily a cook and he was involved in the battles at Anzio. My grandfather, Robert Speirs, was a mechanic who was part of the D Day landing. He was very tall and he spent much of that day helping drag soldiers out of the water and onto the beach. Both made it home alive.
