“We’re using this book as an example for our company of how to do a book; we’re proud of this project.”
“I am really impressed with the final result. this is the way a Regimental history book should be made – a mixture of text, great action pictures and artifact photographs. This is the way to promote your Regiment to the general public and to create an esprit de corps among the new members of the Regiment. Kudos!”
“I was privileged to be gifted the Pictorial History by Bruce Kadonoff [the British Columbia Regiment Commanding Officer] and RSM Arden at a recent BC Dragoons event that we were mutually attending. After three days of looking at it I can confidently state it is – by far – the best Regimental Pictorial History I have ever seen. Well done to all.”
”Amazing!! I’ve not seen any other Regimental History as nice as this.”
“I have now had a chance to have a proper look at the book and I am very impressed by it. It tells some wonderful stories of the British Columbia Regiment, of individual soldiers, and of events relating to Vancouver and British Columbia in general. It will be a very welcome addition to our collection of British Columbia History materials and I am sure that it will be of great value to those who use our collection”.
