This is completely off topic, except for the fact that it is heartwarming. Anything heartwarming is somewhat Model T related.
What a great gesture toward this Belgian boy by the commander of this squadron....
I have seen that before, but had forgotten, it is a great show of respect from both sides. Canadians may have funny looking money, but they have class, and I have yet to meet a Belgian that I did not like.
Well, that's good to know, as I'm 1/4 Flemish!
(I'm on dial-up, so I can't watch the video).
I tear up each time I see this. The pride and honour that the lad, and the Canadians show is astounding.
I partly grew up in Canada, and my mother was Flemish (born in Mechelen, and a refugee to England ahead of the German invasion in WWI), so I particularly liked the video. Thanks, Dick!
