Gunner Wallace Reece Brunt
On 20 August 1941 Gunner Wallace Brunt of the 85th Battery, 15th (Vancouver) Coast Brigade RCA drowned while on duty at Yorke Island. Thanks to the work of our Honorary Battery Commander, Ross Keller, in reviving the history of Gunner Brunt we made contact with a military collector in Denmark who had purchased the Memorial Cross presented to Gunner Brunt's wife. Ross has maintained contact with the collector and reached agreement that the collection was more fitting in the 15th Field Artillery Regiment Museum & Archives. They have now arrived!
