In the grey twilight of the autumn eves,
It sighed as it sang through the dying leaves:
“Ye think with regret that the world was bright,
That your path was short and your task was light;
The path, though short, was perhaps the best
And the toil was sweet, that it led to rest.”
John McCrae

Frank Sekulich

Frank Joseph Sekulich

 

 

By:  Pat MacFarlane

 

 

Frank Joseph Sekulich

Born:  March 3, 1918

Died:  April 4, 1945

 

At the mention of his name, my father’s eyes (Mark Sekulich) would fill with tears and he would leave the room.  Faye (Gibney) Benson recalls watching November 11th Service from Ottawa with Grandma.  Grandma cried so hard that Faye thought Grandma should go to Ottawa to lay a wreath.  But they never talked about him in front of us.  He went to war and never returned, it was in the past, if you didn’t talk about it you didn’t hurt.  That was the Croatian way.

 

I have been told he was a happy-go-lucky man, but a bit short on temper.  The other brothers knew if they got into a bind Frank would wade in and help them out.  Rumor has it he liked to scap and took down more than 1 local fellow.

 

In the early years the country schools were used for dances.  There were many schools and 2-3 dances a week.  Frank went as much as possible.  But he was up early the next morning telling everyone “Get up!  People die in bed you know.”

 

Frank received a Grade 8 education at Hilledge and worked on the farm.  He spent some time in Sudbury with family.  He then went to B.C. where he worked as a fire fighter.

 

When the war broke out in 1939 he was 21.  He attempted to enlist but was refused for reasons unknown.

 

In 1943 he tried again and was accepted.  He formally enlisted on March 11, 1943 at Powell River, B.C. as Frank Nicholas Sekulich.  He listed his trade as farmer, mill worker.

 

He did basic training in Vernon, B.C., Winnipeg, Man., Wetaskiwin, Alberta, Camp Shilo, Manitoba and Woodstock, Ontario.

 

On February 19, 1944 he was engaged to Lorraine McNeil while on furlough.

 

On August 16, 1944 he failed to return from leave.  He was A.W.L. for 1 day and 12 hours.  He was admonished for the offense, on open arrest and forfeited 2 days pay.  I hope he had a good time for he shipped out to England August 31, 1944.

 

He was a member of Regina Rifles Regiment.  They went to France on September 29, 1944.  On February 13, 1945 he was promoted to Lt. Corporal.  The regiment ended up in Holland.  Another man from Kenaston, Bill Hobel was in the same regiment and was right beside him when he was killed by sniper fire April 5, 1945.  Bill told Grandma he died instantly which was a source of comfort to her, knowing he didn’t suffer.

 

Frank is buried in Holten Canadian War Cemetery, in Holland, with 1,342 other Canadians.

 

As an item of interest, Canada played a major role in the liberation of Holland.  Part of today’s school curriculum involves care and maintenance of these cemeteries.  Each child is assigned a specific grave to visit and plant flowers.  This was told to me by Gerarda Kaye, R.N., my co-worker who grew up in Holland.

 

In the Memorial Chamber at the base of Parliaments Peace Tower in Ottawa, Canada’s Books of Remembrance are displayed.  The books are under glass and list in alphabetical order the names of the war dead.  Each day at 11 am a page is turned in each book so that every name can at some time be read.  A grateful nation recognizes his sacrifice every year on November 24th when page 562 is displayed.

 

I feel I know him now.  He was 5’8” by his military records, handsome by his photos, a bit vain, charismatic, feisty and family oriented by all accounts.

 

I can’t help but wonder how different our family would have been had he come home.  Another Aunt and Uncle and more cousins to swell over ranks.  I often wonder how he would have made a living, where he would have lived and how his life would have affected us.

An article has been written about Frank Sekulich by Noudi Spönhoff for a Dutch magazine. The article reflected on Frank Sekulich who lost his life as a soldier when he bravely fought the Germans near the village of Almen, where the Canadians recaptured the ‘Ehzer bridge’. This bridge though often called a Canadian troops a Bailey bridge (Victoria Bridge) is actually a callender-Hamilton Bridge. As the Germans destroyed many bridges during the war, those which remain have intrinsic heritage value. As this one survived the war, it has been re-furbished.

Debden: Notre Dame de Fatima Cenotaph

Traveling along provincial highway the village of Debden is located 94.18 kilometres (55 58.52 miles)
from Prince Albert approximately an hour away and traveling along Saskatchewan provincial highway 12 Debden is 193.06 kilometres (119.96 miles) from Saskatoon about a two and a half hour drive. Debden is northwest of Prince Albert and north of Saskatoon.

The Notre Dame de Fatima Cenotaph was restored by the Debden Knights of Columbus in 2009 via an application to the Cenotaph/Monument Restoration Program at Veterans Affairs Canada.

“Monuments and cenotaphs serve an important role in our remembrance because they are a permanent symbol of the pride and gratitude Canadians share for our nation’s truest heroes,” said the Honourable Greg Thompson, Minister of Veterans Affairs “It is important that we maintain the glory of our cenotaphs and memorials, and in doing so, inspire a renewed sense of remembrance within the community. This is why our government continues to provide support for cenotaph and monument restoration in communities across the country.”

The Knights of Columbus in Debden received funding for the restoration of the Notre Dame de Fatima Cenotaph in Debden.

“We are proud to stand with Canadians to honour the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform,” said Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz This funding will ensure that the cenotaph in Debden remains a place of remembrance and reflection for future generations of the community.”

Within the book they pay tribute to those who paid the supreme sacrifice in the two great wars, the Korean War and the Boer War from the area of Saskatchewan.

Park Valley is 22.5 kilometers (fourteen miles) northeast of Debden. Traveling along provincial highway the village of Debden is located 94.18 kilometres (55 58.52 miles) from Prince Albert approximately an hour away and traveling along Saskatchewan provincial highway 12 Debden is 193.06 kilometres (119.96 miles) from Saskatoon about a two and a half hour drive. Debden is northwest of Prince Albert and north of Saskatoon.

V34087 John Thompson (age 24), a cook aboard HMCS Regina and the son of Robert Parker and Helena Thompson of Prince Albert was one of the seamen honoured on Sunday 22 September 2013 at an unveiling ceremony held on Navy Way in Regina in front of the HMCS Queen naval reserve unit.

The Friends of the Navy have honoured Royal Canadian Navy sailors who hail from Saskatchewan, particularly those who fell in World War II. The new Saskatchewan Naval monument honours the naval ships, Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Weyburn and HMCS Regina which were both lost during World War II. HMCS Weyburn was commemorated earlier during the centennial year of the Royal Canadian Navy in 2010 on the 67th anniversary of its sinking. (One other naval vessel paid tribute to a Saskatchewan community, HMCS Waskesiu survived the war and was sold to the Indian navy in 1950.)

HMCS Weyburn (K 173) was a flower class corvette mainly serving in the Battle of the Atlantic. This smaller ship was needed as an escort ship and equipped by minesweeping gear. However, on 22 February 1943 at 11:17AM the Weyburn struck a large SSMA (Sonder Mine A) magnetic mine laid by German submarine U-118 three weeks earlier. The mine, new technology for the time, could be laid as deep as 350 meters, and the Weyburn was one of its first victims. Of the 83 officers and men aboard the Weyburn 12 died and there were 71 survivors.

HMCS Regina (K 234) was another Saskatchewan namesake for the province’s capital city. HMCS Regina was also a flower class corvette engaged in escort duties in the Second World War. The American liberty ship the Ezra Weston was a cargo vessel carrying war material to the theatre of war when she took a torpedo from U-667. Her only escort was the HMCS Regina which was under the impression that the merchant ship had fallen victim to a mine. When the Regina turned to assist the flailing ship and pick up survivors, the U-boat then also fired on the corvette. Within 30 seconds on 8 August 1944 at 9:27PM one officer and 27 men were killed.

Robert Watkins, a prairie sailor out of Winnipeg, sums it up this way: “During the war the one thing I was scared of was the submarines, if the supply lines from Canada and the US had dried up on account of the U-boats Britain would have gone under.”

Alongside John Thompson, V11460 Douglas Peter Robertson RCNVR , son of Robert Angus and Elizabeth Jane Robertson of Saskatoon, fell 8 August 1944 in his capacity as Petty Officer Stoker aboard HMCS Regina. As well, V34478 John Charles Henry Rathbone RCNVR , son of John and Florence Rathbone of Regina, who took on the duties of supply assistant, did not survive his wounds incurred that fatal evening. These three Saskatchewan prairie naval reservists lost their lives along with their crew mates, British and Canadian sailors.

The Fall Action Stations magazine reports that “exactly how many Saskatchewanians served in the RCN during the war is hard to estimate as many volunteered at recruiting offices outside the province. And due to wartime staffing pressures, sailors from a particular city or town rarely served on the ship bearing its name.”

For instance, V11616 Joseph McGrath, son of Margaret McGrath of Saskatoon, served aboard HMCS Athabaskan and was one of those honoured in the commemorative naming program of the Saskatchewan Geographic Names Board with the naming of McGrath Lake. Natural geographic features across Saskatchewan honour armed forces personnel and merchant sailors from the Second World War and the Korean War, and also those who fell during peacekeeping missions or in Afghanistan.

The Naval Memorial erected at a cost of about $3,000 was spearheaded by Doug Archer, chairman of the Friends of the Navy, and Steve Smedley. There are over 6,000 war memorials in Canada remembering those who fought with courage. Saskatoon’s Next of Kin Memorial Avenue at Woodlawn cemetery is a national historic site. Both the Regina cemetery and the North Battleford cemetery are homes to two of the 28 Crosses of Sacrifice. Alongside these memorials, the Royal Canadian Legion branches and towns across Saskatchewan have erected monuments and cenotaphs honouring those who fell in military service from their community.

Quoting Lieutenant James Balfour, himself a prairie seaman, serving in the naval reserve stemmed from “the belief that there are things that are more important than just you as an individual, it’s about serving your country and doing something for the good of others.”

Terrence McEachern of the Leader Post quoted Doug Archer, former mayor of Regina: “We are so truly blessed that others have gone before us to preserve our freedom and our democracy. We need to honour them and never forget the contribution they’ve made.”
