it’s a treat to be able to make a short post that isn’t an update on my ‘to do’ list.
Yesterday I took delivery of the first few copies of my booklet about the ten British Home Children who are buried at La Chaudiere military cemetery near Vimy. All ten died serving King and country in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. They all had a story to tell, but didn’t live long enough to tell it for themselves. This is a collection of ten short life stories.
It’s available online from Lulu.
Now I need to carry on and get to the end of the research for the next offering which will tell the stories of the 130 children who travelled to Canada in 1909 aboard Carthaginian, for a new life in Canada.
