    'Wait for me, Daddy' is one of the most famous Canadian pictures of the Second World War. It was taken October 1st, 1940, in New Westminster, British Columbia by Claude Dettloff. The little boy wasn’t the only one who saw his father leave. These men were the British Columbia Regiment armoured reconnaissance unit marching to war. Three and a half years after this photo was taken, this unit suffered enormous casualties at Hill 195 in Normandy. The boy’s father did survive the war though.
