From a World War 11 scrapbook that the Diocese of London found in 2007 when it was preparing to close Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Windsor, Ont. The scrapbook has been preserved in the diocesan archives. Because it’s too fragile for physical handling or public display the diocesan archivist has digitized the entire scrapbook.
