Newfoundland & Labrador
Female War Veterans

| Enter War Veterans Site | Last Updated Feb. 21, 2011|

This section is just new and will take time to obtain all the missing information.

 


It is believed that about 525 Newfoundland Women enlisted.

As time permits I will also add the War Brides who served because Newfoundland
was independent at the time of WWII our war history is somewhat hard to track down.

The history of both the Newfoundland and Labrador
War Brides and the Newfoundland Female Veterans
is very important; therefore I decided to dedicate this site to both.
I split this site so the story of both these group of women would not be lost.

This site is dedicated to honor these women and meant to be a starting point for future generations to research a family ancestry and understand that these women played an important part in who we are today.

This site is also filling a void in our history by providing students with a link to a history that has gone unrecorded.

For the last three years this site has received between 500-600 hits in the month of March when school students are doing research for the School Heritage Fair’s and last year a project about a war bride took first place in the Western area. This year I hope to put some light on the part played by Female veterans. Please Note:

Since 2006 I have put in almost 4000 hours into the development, upkeep and expansion of this site. At present this site has 1478 files, 821 HTML files, 28,263 links and 544 external links. I am only one person so if you find an error on one of the pages please send me an email so I can fix it. This site is still growing and I hoping to provide interesting information and links as I find them.
