A Sylvan Lake filmmaker has produced a documentary about Maritime soldiers’ D-Day experiences.

Allan Cameron’s film The Fighting North Novies: In the Fire! pays tribute to the soldiers of the North Nova Scotia Highlanders and their fight during and immediately after June 6, 1944.

Cameron’s work stems from being the man behind Veterans Voices of Canada, a non-profit organization dedicated to capturing war veterans’ memories for posterity.

His ongoing video interviews and having two uncles fight with the North Novies — one of whom didn’t survive — prompted making the movie.

The film will debut to veterans and their families later this month in Amherst and Truro, N.S. Cameron, who hails from nearby Sydney, is donating a portion of the proceeds from DVD sales to the regiment’s museum.

Copies are available for $25 each by emailing Cameron at
