Is there a World War I Canadian war bride in your family?
Thousands of brave young women crossed the Atlantic during and after WWI to start new lives as brides of the Canadian Expeditionary Force Soldiers. Annette Fulford will describe the life of her grandmother, Grace Clark, a war bride who sailed from England to Canada on the RMS Melita in 1919. Learn more about the war brides at Annette's website and blog: http://wwiwarbrides.shawwebspace.ca/blog
Annette Fulford, who's been researching war brides for some years now, will be speaking twice this month in the Lower Mainland. I'm looking forward to hearing her talk this week in Burnaby, and she'll be at the Maple Ridge Library, May 19th.
