A North Vancouver RCMP officer has helped reunite a Quebec woman with her late husband’s stolen Second World War service medals.

Const. Rob Pearson found the heirlooms, which were affixed to a wooden plaque, in a stolen truck last year.

After doing some digging, Pearson learned the medals had been awarded to Pierre Leduc for service in Italy with the Van Doos regiment.

“An invitation for a 75th anniversary at a mill in Gatineau, Que., was also found in the stolen truck,” said RCMP Cpl. Marlene Morton.

Pearson contacted the mill, which put him in contact with Leduc’s widow, Carmen.

“Pearson arranged for a French-speaking police officer to contact her and explain the situation,” Morton said. “She was thrilled.”
