This is a picture of my Aunt Nell (Helen Marshall Crossman - 3rd from the right) along with some of her War Bride friends. Is this what life on the Canadian Prairies did to them?
The picture on the left is my Aunt Nell with one of her best friends, Lena Hammer, who was also a War Bride. These pictures were taken in Regina, Saskatchewan at a War Brides Reunion in April 1988 when my aunt was 73 yrs. old. She passed away two years ago at the young age of 91.
I am originally from Saskatchewan, Canada but raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I have been dabbling in the family history on and off for 30 years but have only now had the time to get down to the nitty gritty.
