Mr. de la Beij
On behalf of the Regiment, thank you for letting us know about Jean. She played a significant role in strengthening moral for Canadian Soldiers during WWII, in particular The Royal Winnipeg Rifles. I know she kept in touch with many of them after the war, and formed friendships with soldiers over the years on her visits to Canada, and when soldiers would visit Deventer, and many considered her an honourary rifleman. I extend condolences to you and your family, and wish Jean a peaceful rest.

Good day Robert,
You will find a remembrance of Pvt Lacellle at https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/5980678 . I have added a link to the records now available from Library and Archives Canada. Any further information you can add to the Life is much appreciated. There is no need to pay for any records just sign in and you can add any information you have.
Will the RWR be planning / hosting a tour to Normandy for the 75th anniversary of D day?
