Default John Sheardown

Noted for sheltering Americans during the Iran hostage crisis, he also flew Lanc's in WWII and served in Korea. Apparently the recent movie minimized or ignored the Canadian embassy's involvement, but many of us remember this fellow's (and his colleagues') help. RIP, sir, and thank you. Well done.
