CORNWALL, Ontario - Cornwall's Walter Solly, 93, was one of the brave men who fought in the D-Day landings in Normandy 70 years ago.

Solly was a private with the 1st Battalion of the SD&G Highlanders.

MP Guy Lauzon and MPP Jim McDonell presented the war hero with a certificate during a special presentation at the Riverdale Terrace Waterfront Retirement Residence today.

Solly will join fellow veterans and current and past SD&G Highlanders at the Cornwall Armoury Saturday for the annual Glens' Association reunion.

A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m., followed by a reunion dinner, and a sunset flag ceremony.

More to come.
