Lost photographs found

Nothing beats having your parents find a box of old photos and materials from the war that we had thought had gone missing, including photos of my grandfather from the First World War, photos and clippings about the Dieppe Raid and of members of the Calgary Tanks and of course treasured family photos. Thankfully, they had all been safely tucked away. I’m scanning all of the photographs and will be posting them on this blog, but for now here’s a sample of Doc Alexander taken in Eil, Germany in 1919 after the First World War had ended. More to come.

      A big sigh of relief. It seems we never really appreciate these things until they go missing. At least it was only a small panic and not real regret.
