8. Shot down over Nazi-occupied Europe, RCAF veteran remembers the dead
from Windsor Star
From Nov. 11, 2016:
For several hours a day over most of Remembrance Week, 98-year-old air force veteran Art Anderson continues his service to Canada, selling poppies at the entrance to Windsor's Superstore on Dougall Avenue. Perched on a chair between a mountain of Purex liquid detergent and a stack of Quaker instant oatmeal boxes, Anderson draws attention, as do his war stories. A Second World War Royal Canadian Air Force navigator on a dangerous resupply mission for paratroopers stuck in the disastrous Battle of Arnhem, his C-47 Dakota was shot down in September 1944, crashing behind enemy lines. But the crew survived.
