Not sure of your abbreviation,"8th Bur", but I take it to refer to 8th Brigade, which was an element of
3rd Canadian Division.
Canadian 8th Brigade included these elements:
The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada
Le Regiment de la Chaundiere
The North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment.
The Brigade landed on Juno Beach, France 6 June 1944.
There were otherCanadian units there,including:
'Other' Divisional Troops.
If you have access, Warren Tute's "D-Day" gives a good
account of operations by the Canadians on Juno.
Do you have other informatin you can provide ?
