my uncles were Nova Scotia fishermen during WW2 and they joined the Merchant Marine. Would Harry have had that option?
Very well read :) We can really get a sense of his personality- he is really hoping to get out of this! What percentage of Canadian soldiers were conscripted?
Did Harry get back into fishing?

Interesting that Harry was so concerned about money. Were most soldiers in the same situation -- short of money?
Were there many women who tried to sign up?
prison seems harsh for the women
Did he meet Wyn in England?

How did Eugene acquire a fiancée during the war?
I'm curious about the cyclist battalions. I knew bicycles were used in the war for transport, but how common were they and what did the battalions do?
Were letters from the front ever censored so as to not divulge any details of war?
did Winnies brother survive the war?
Did any of the letter writers mention the influenza epidemic of 1918?

how can we order the book?
Maybe I missed it, but where are the original letters now, and where/how did you find them?
how was Winnies death received in her community? was it published in the local papers?
sorry Paulines death
i don't think Pauline was on the ship when it went down?
I was going to ask if she continued nursing when she got back... I thought she had survived
I think the ship went down on a return trip to Ireland after she was back in Canada
