Ian J. Campbell

Major (later Colonel) Ian J. Campbell of the Canadian Army was serving in Europe and visited Abbaye d'Ardenne in 1980. Noting that there was no tourist literature about the men who had fallen there or the circumstances around the event, Campbell was instrumental in documenting this story. In 1984, Colonel Campbell had a bronze memorial tablet cast in Vancouver and delivered to France for mounting on the monument in Abbaye d'Ardenne.
