This short history of the Canadian Army Film and Photo Unit was researched and written by my father, Brian O'Regan. Brian was a despatch rider with the unit during World War II. Brian wrote the account to accompany a museum exhibit about war correspondents for the Museum of the Regiments (Calgary, AB, 1997). This piece was the bedrock upon which I built the story of Shooters, a documentary about the unit.. It was to have featured Brian, my brother Philip and I, as we walked along the beach and among the various notable sites where my father saw action with the unit. Brian died before that could happen. The history of the Canadian Army Film and Photo Unit remains untilled, fertile ground yet. I hope this small pamphlet will lead others to explore the land.
