Stoessi’s Heroes - Canadian Highlander Scout and Sniper Harold
Thomas "Stoessi" Stoesser
Canadian Highlander Sgt Harold Marshall
By 1944, Canadian infantry battalions had a platoon of scouts and snipers. Equipped and trained in stealth and camouflage, they were the forerunners of today's recce troops.
One of them was Sergeant Harold A. Marshall, a Calgary Highlanders sniper. A picture of him became one of the most famous photographs to come out of WW2 and was also the inspiration for this miniature.
