I got your email from the Royal Regt of Canada website. My Dad was a Toronto boy and member of the Machine Gun Corps in WW1 joining up in1915. Although he died in 1977 it is only recently that I have been going through his letters home. In one I found the attached poem which I thought might be of interest to your members and your Museum and archives. I can send it along if you like.
My Dad’s twin brothers both served in the 3rd Bn QOR of C and both were KIA one in April ’15 and the other in July ’16. My older brother was a major in the QYRangers. I now live in Vancouver and served for 18 years in the RCD and LdSH ad as many in the militia finishing up with the BCR’s in Vancouver.
