Default War Amps film winner...

War Amps have come out with another winning war documentary...this is about all the kids from Kelvin High School ..

The Boys of Kelvin High
Canadians in Bomber Command
Duration: 2 hours ($14.00)

View The Boys of
Kelvin High Media Kit
This documentary is dedicated to the Canadians who volunteered for one of the most dangerous occupations of the war - Bomber Command. Ten thousand of them never came home. This loss was felt by families and communities across the country.

Producer Cliff Chadderton, an infantry commander in WWII, made the shocking discovery that from his high school alone - Kelvin High in Winnipeg - more than 50 classmates were killed serving in Bomber Command.

The Boys of Kelvin High tells the remarkable story of those who flew in mighty bombers through enemy territory night after night. Against great adversity, they pressed on in a relentless drive to defeat Hitler’s Nazi regime.

A member of The War Amps Operation Legacy helps tell the story. Growing up through the CHAMP Program, Chris Koch learned about war from those who were there. Now, he passes on the message from veterans. He visits two unique museums dedicated to those who served in Bomber Command - the Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum in Brandon, Manitoba and the Nanton Lancaster Society Air Museum in his hometown of Nanton, Alberta.

Younger generations today may wonder how the bomber crews ever did it. Most would tell that the bombing war was a dangerous job but that it had to be done. It was part of a total commitment to defeat the enemy.

Part I: The End of the Beginning follows the airmen through training, crewing up, the Battle of the Ruhr and the Dambusters Raid.

Part II: Press On Regardless continues to explore the experiences and dangers faced by the air crews in raids such as Peenemünde and the Battle of Berlin.
