Consisting of the Calgary Highlanders, the Black Watch, and the French-speaking Règiment de Maisonneuve, the 5th Canadian Infantry Brigade landed in France in early July 1944 as part of British General Bernard Montgomery's 21st Army Group. That summer, the brigade participated in hellish battles in Normandy, including Caen and Verriéres Ridge. The 5th went on to distinguish itself in Belgium, where it endured foul weather and fierce resistance near Antwerp in October 1944, and ended the war with bloody streetfighting in the towns of Holland.

This is the first version of our app that is available to the public. This version is mostly an interface to our mobile web site with a few helpful tools layered over the top.

As we improve the app, we will be making it more powerful and more focused to give you more control and a better user experience.

For now the main features are easy access to the barcode scanner (your camera) and text searching.

Many more features are in the works including more actions than simple product lookups for your barcode scanner. But for now, we hope that this initial version adds some value and improves the user experience as you use the EAN Data that we have to offer.
