Letter: War bride reunion

I am the daughter of a Second World War war bride who met and married my Canadian soldier father near the end of the war.  Within a year of their marriage, my mother sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to be reunited with my father along with tens of thousands of other English, Scottish, Welsh, Dutch, and French war brides. These women were and continue to be amazing and strong ladies who have given so much to their families and to Canada.  Statistics indicate that one in 30 Canadians are directly related to a Second World War war bride.

We are holding our annual War Bride Reunion in Victoria, British Columbia from April 11 to 14, 2013 at the Fairmont Empress Hotel and need your help to spread the word about this fun-filled party for our wonderful Mums!  I have attached a short press release and hope that you can find some space in your upcoming publications to share this information.

Janet Leahy,

Canadian War Brides & Families Association,
