A Man Most Ordinary (the story of Clifton Stewart)

This week we were saddened to learn that Clifton Stewart passed away at his home in Charlotttetown. He was 91.

Many of you may remember our documentary about Mr Stewart, and his activities during the Second World War.

Mr Stewart was recruited by the British Military for his radio operating skills.

He was one of several hundred allied troops trained at a special covert facility in southern Ontario called Camp X.

It wasn't something he spoke about for many years, but in 2008 he told his story to the CBC's Laura Chapin.
