As a teenager Kate Leblanc wondered why her father kept an old German sidearm on display in their home.

Roly LeBlanc was one of six brothers from Quebec's Gaspé region who had enlisted in Canada's Armed Forces during World War II. The LeBlanc boys personified an occupational phenomenon common in this part of the country, where it seems that for generations of young men, only four ways of life were imaginable: fishing, farming, lumbering or military service.

Roly chose the Air Force and was stationed in North Africa, eventually returning home to Canada, where he took up his father's butcher trade.

Other brothers weren't so lucky.

In 1943 Kate's uncle Lloyd was killed when his plane was shot down over Holland.

Kate LeBlanc has a keen interest in the remarkable military heritage of Gaspésian communities and has served as president of the New Richmond branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.

She spoke to StoryNet about her father, her uncles and a memorable motorcycle ride in the North African desert nearly 70 years ago.

 

Recorded in New Richmond, Qc.
