Canadian Forces in Netherlands celebration

A Canadian Forces contingent participated Sunday in the 65th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands with a parade in Apeldoorn.

It was in April 1945 that members of 1st Canadian Corps liberated the city of Apeldoorn from Axis forces. The operation, which lasted seven days, resulted in 506 casualties for the Canadians while at the same time capturing over 2,500 German soldiers.
