Green On, Go, the history of Canada's airborne gunners is now available. I am honoured to have participated in the project by writing most of the manuscript, but it is very much a group project by the airborne gunner community. The book itself is in coffee table format and contains a large number of illustrations and maps. Green On, Go covers the role of Canadian airborne gunners in the Mediterranean and North West Europe in the Second World War, the defence of Canada role in the Cold War, the FLQ crisis and Cyprus in 1974, and subsequent activities up to the early 1990s.

Incidentally, Canada holds the record world for the farthest north (and probably coldest) live fire mission, by the airborne battery near Resolute Bay in November 1971. Find out how to conduct indirect fire north of the magnetic pole and with maps that basically were bare sheets of paper.

Let me add a compliment to the team, and especially LCol (ret) Mike Walker, who managed to get Bombardier Patrick Labrie, who was killed in a parachuting accident on an exercise in Europe, added to the role of honour.
