A Soldier’s Letter

Pte. Jim Dunn informs readers that he is being recruited from the 123th Battalion, CEF, along with two other companies from the 124th, 125th, and 184th, to reinforce the 8th Battalion, CEF, originally comprised of recruits from Brandon and Winnipeg, Manitoba as well as Kenora and Port Arthur, Ontario. He remarks: “I often see a bunch of Streetsville lads, as there are a lot of us here, but I am afraid I will be the only one leaving in this draft unless A. Irwin and B. Doerr come with the 124th.”
