Question for those who paid attention in Basic Training

Post by By the Bay on Fri 17 May 2013, 02:51

I know that this is not the forum to post this question cause it does not pertain to SISIP however,
I find that this forum and it members are very knowledgeable so i will take my chances...
My son is doing a class project on the Pictures Hung in Parliament Hill.
He has got most of their name but one.
The Clue is that this man is a Military Hero and is named after something?
What the Bleep...
I know....not much to go by...But i do believe that we learned this in basic training(Theory)
What is the name of the guy who's picture is in the main lobby outside of the House of Commons.
I have never been to the House of Commons so i have no idea...
I believe his last name is Borden. But I could Be wrong....
Please Help....

Sir Robert Laird Borden Prime Minister from 1911 to 1920 if this is your man you can google his name for more info. If not the google portraits in parliament hill and look at the COC WEB site good luck

I believe that the above post it most likely the answer, but there was a Flying Officer Roderick Borden Gray, who was awarded the George Cross in WW 2, our local Air Cadets are named after him
