 Honorary Lieutenant General Richard Rohmer.  While active in World War II, while flying he noticed a fast moving car and reported it. It turned out to be the hunted and dreaded 'Desert Fox' Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. Rohmer reported the car's location to Group Control Centre, which sent in a Spitfire piloted by Canadian Charley Fox. Rohmer took part in D-Day and the Battles of Normandy, Belgium and Holland. He is the Senior Canadian Veteran of all of those Battles.
