Anthony Towstego’s first Veteran interview (1986) — James Doohan
June 6, 1944, James M. Doohan of Vancouver, led D Company of Royal Winnipeg Rifles ashore at Juno beach. He would be shot 6 times, survive and go on to become Scotty on Star Trek.
“This kind soul was one of the first Veteran interviews I ever had. It was the mid eighties when James Doohan shared his story with me” Anthony adds “We had a bottle of fine red French wine and Chinese food that night when he opened up to me. Sadly, I had no camera on him. He shared in tears his vivid memories of his war story. I was mesmerized. And yes he did reveal his half finger to me… that he would conceal from cameras. .. amazing man”
Although he played Scotsman Montgomery “Scotty” Scott on the original “Star Trek,” actor James Doohan was Canadian and served in the Royal Canadian Artillery during the Second World War. Doohan was among the first wave of Canadians to come ashore at Juno Beach on D-Day. After taking out German snipers, Doohan was himself shot six times, losing a finger on his right hand. He would conceal that wound during most of his career as an actor. Toughest red shirt EVA!!!!
