A WARTIME LEGEND
The experiences of people in war produce many stories. Some of them are true; some of them could be.
This scene built by Nick Dunning of Quispamsis tells the story of a Canadian soldier given a medal by a German. This diorama was donated to the 8th Hussars Museum and is on display .
After a battle between Canadian and German units, the German felt the Canadian had gone beyond what was necessary in caring for wounded Germans and wanted to reward him. He removed an Iron Cross (a high German decoration) from his own uniform and presented it to the Canadian in thanks.
