District Service File Nears Completion—More Information is Required
The District Service File at the Lindsay Public Library is attracting greater attention with the service personnel returning day by day from overseas. Accordingly greater efforts are being made to make it a complete records of service that was given by the citizens of Victoria and Haliburton who donned the uniform to play their part in winning World War II.
For the present the aim to make it complete for the two Counties has been reluctantly abandoned and it is planned instead to make a concentrated effort on the Lindsay section of this roll. All other contributions will be entered as received but entries will be sought of all those who served from the town of Lindsay. Three months time will be devoted to these entries of Lindsay men and women. The aim will be to have every Lindsay serviceman and woman entered with a complete, up-to-date record and snapshot. The Business Girls Club has provided a list of the Boys Overseas at the peak of the conflict. These names are now being entered with write-ups to be added in the order that they are received.
An invitation is extended to the citizens of the town to visit the Public Library and view the Service Records. This file is in the main lobby and may be examined there any weekday between the hours 2 and 5.30 in the afternoon and 7 to 9 in the evening.
Entry forms with a convenient listing of the information that is required have been prepared and are available for your serviceman’s record. Kindly secure one now and assist in compiling this worth while record of our Counties’ part in this war. Town folk are asked to act on the slogan “COMPLETE FOR LINDSAY BY APRIL 1st.”
Out-of-town readers are reminded that this is their opportunity to have their representatives included in the Victoria and Haliburton Honour Roll. Entries of servicemen and women are requested, if there homes are in the counties of Victoria or Haliburton. Information will be recorded and snapshots placed on the entries if these are forwarded to the Lindsay Public Library, Kent Street West, Lindsay.
