For King and Country TV Series Ep.6: Northwest Europe and the Pacific
After Normandy they all thought it was over, but 10,000 Canadians would die before the war in Europe would end 8 months later. The show starts with the capturing of the Atlantic Wall (Todt Battery), then covers the Channel Ports; the taking of the Breskens Pocket, to free the South Scheldt, and Antwerpen; the brutal battle of the Rhineland, and finishes in Europe with the liberation of Holland. The Episode then jumps to Japan and the last Victoria Cross action of the war. Hampton Gray, VC won his VC posthumously attacking and sinking a Japanese destroyer in Onagowa Bay. He was the last Canadian to die in action in the Second World War. The show finishes in Yokahoma War Cemetery near Tokyo, and honours the 125 graves of Canadian Hong Kong POWs that are buried there.
