Aldergrove Legion hosted the National Peacekeepers Day for 2015 on Sunday, August 9. This was the seventh anniversary of the day, first proclaimed on June 18, 2008

Sunday’s ceremony was attended by 25 former members of Canadian Armed Forces and their friends and families.

A special presentation of the Arctic Star Medal was made to Robert Mathison, who while in the Canadian Navy was posted to the British cruiser “Berwick”. He was on a convoy that repatriated 11,000 Russian nationals to their homeland. Unfortunately, what happened to these people is unclear.

The Arctic Star is a Military Campaign Medal that was instituted by the United Kingdom on December 19, 2012 an award to subjects of the British Commonwealth for service in the Second World War, specifically to those who served on the Arctic convoys.

The Arctic Medal was presented posthumously to Lynne Mathison, the daughter of Robert, by Aldergrove Legion president Doug Hadley.
