CPAC’s Catherine Clark interviews four special Canadian military veterans who served this country in its time of need.

Margarita ‘Madge’ Trull (née Janes) was born in Chile of English parents, grew up in England and with her sister joined the Women’s Royal Naval Service or WRENS. Madge was quickly recruited to work at Bletchley Park, as a cryptologist or codebreaker deciphering German messages. During the war Madge met a Canadian, John Trull, a fighter pilot who flew Spitfires and despite the bombings and the war decided to get married. One month before the big day, her fianceé was shot down and she didn’t hear anything about him for the next six months.
