Return to Agira
Enjoy this moving short film about Operation Husky 2013, a monumental series of events commemorating the Canadian war effort in Sicily 70 years before in July 1943. The DVD features the concert of the Seaforth Highlanders Pipes and Drums in the town square of Agira where their predecessors beat retreat in 1943 as Canadian soldiers fought the enemy on the outskirts of town.
The Seaforths were a proud part of Operation Husky 2013 and look forward to the forthcoming full-length documentary about OpHusky2013 from Max Fraser Video Productions.
This DVD was commissioned by the Seaforth Highlanders Foundation. Proceeds from the sale of this DVD go to the foundation.
