My Nana is a War Bride from Manchester, England. She just turned 80 last saturday. She is sound as a Pound, and looks 60. Ben Wicks (the cartoonist) has written some good books on Canadian War Brides. "No time to wave goodbye" and "Please take care of my daughter" There was a Vancouver Island War Brides Club" in which Nanaimo had its own chapter. They use to meet every week for as long as I can remeber. Sadly, they disbanded last year as the membership was dwindeling.
And Gentlemen in England, now-a-bed, Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here.;)
