I believe the hat badge is the North Nova Scotia Highlanders, a 3rd Division Battaion

Certainly more digging to be done. The Buron location and his account do make you think of the advance to Carpiquet and the 12 SS counter attack, but NNSH and 8 Bde were in reserve that day. The NNSH did have a messy fight to clear the woods south of Tailleville and make an attempt at the radar station at Douvres.

Actually the North Nova Scotia Highlanders were in the middle of the fight for Buron and further that day Kevin. The newspaper article indicate said he was wounded on the second day of the invasion, which would have been the 7th June, and the NNSH took a lot of casualties that day

Of course that is assuming that Pte Romeo Fleury was part of the Regiment that day?? The photo shows him holding a NNSH Glenngary with a NNSH hat badge on it......but that photo “may” have been taken later......I’m still trying to find his name on any unit orders etc

You are correct. Despite the right initial idea about Authie and Buron, I then started talking about the North Shores rather than the North Novas.

I have sent you a private message with Romeo's Grandniece's contact information (with her permission), and as Temujin mentioned you can simply send your team the link to this thread from the address bar and they will be able to view all the information posted. They would need to join the site, as you have, in order to post a reply.

Romeo Fleury is also my great-uncle. He served in WW2 alongside my grandfather, Adelard Fleury.

I would be very interested in this belt, if it is available. Please contact me at kmv612@gmail.com

Thank you,

Kevin Venerus

Hey thanks to everyone digging this up... literally!

I am parsing through all of the service history as well as sending out an RFI to DoD Canada. I am crossing my fingers for a more detailed response as to who his squad mates were and if any of them were capture that day of June 7th by the Hitlerjugend.

Does anyone have a source for the Germans battle summary ?

PS I, along with Darren who posted above me are direct descendants of Romeo via his two children Michael and Cheryl respectively.

Thanks again and great work to everyone!
