D-Day Veteran Russ Kaye Returning to Juno Beach with BBR19 

Born on February 9, 1924, Russell Kaye joined the Canadian Army in February 1942 in Moncton, NB at the age of 19. After completing basic training in Fredricton, NB and advanced training at Petawawa, ON, he was stationed in Debert, Nova Scotia before being transported to Borden, England. From Borden he was relocated to Southhampthon, England for extensive training in preparation for D-Day landings.  

At day break on the morning of June 6 1944, Russ sailed across the English Channel with the 43rd Battery E Troop 12 Field Regiment as part of the invasion in Courselles France.  His Regiment was one of Canada’s first to lay fire in France. 

Russ remained in active service until 1946 and, following his release, he re-enlisted in December 1948 to serve in the Korean War. Russ retired from the Canadian Armed Forces in January, 1971.  He is the last living member of 12th Field Regiment from WW2. This will be the first time Russ has been back to Juno Beach. 

We are deeply honoured that Russ has decided to return to France with our BBR19 team and we invite you to help support this incredible Veteran’s return to Juno by donating today.
