THE SOUTH ALBERTA REGIMENT

In Memory of my father

Some of you may be wondering why there is a page on a bird site about the South Alberta Regiment (S.A.R.). This page is dedicated to my late father, Captain R.  E. "Bobby" Crawford CD  of Medicine Hat, Alberta, who served and fought with the S.A.R. during the war. He joined the S.A.R. at age 17, went to England with his Regiment and subsequently graduated from Sandhurst Military Academy in England as an officer. He then re-joined his Regiment in Holland. On February 28, 1945 he was captured and held as a P.O.W. After the war he served in the Occupational Force, returned to Canada, left the army and then joined the R.C.A.F. where he served as an Flt/Lt. until his retirement from the R.C.A.F. on December 1, 1967. He then worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
This page is for him.
