  • I was very pleased to find my father, Michael Ewanyshyn , a repatriated Canadian soldier looking out of a train window at 7:06 to 7:09 minutes. It is a great gift for myself, and my brothers and sisters and his grandchildren and great grandchildren to see him. He also appears on a stretcher coming off the ship Atlantis in other film footage. Thanks for making this available.
