When I opened this issue I was overjoyed to find not one but two articals dealing with
Newfoundland women who servied with the VAD.

This issue is well worth a read.

Author Linda Granfield spoke at the Corner Brook Royal Canadian Legion on Oct. 22 , 2010, my husband and I attended. We both enjoyed her presentation. I thought because her books deal with WWI and are aimed at readers from 10 to 100 that these books would be good material for students who are doing research for school projects.

These are only a few of Linda's books.

Maureen Lee

Is an English author who has written stories about war time England. I include her because she gives a very good account of war time Liverpool. This provide us with a better understanding of what some of what women might have gone through on the other side of the ocean.
