  Toronto, July 29. — Red Cross parcels are being received in good order by Canadian prisoners of war, and the contents of the parcels are of substantial benefit to prisoners' health. So reads a letter from Captain Wilfred R. Crowe to the Toronto Red Cross branch and just received, by the secretary.
  Captain Crowe, formerly of Orangeville, was a graduate in medicine from Queen's University, and was captured July 1 in Crete while serving with the Royal Army Medical Corps. Before enlisting, he practiced medicine at Minden.
  "Canadian parcels with their B1 content are particularly valuable," wrote Captain Crowe, "and I would like to congratulate you on the choice of foodstuffs. Canadian Red Cross parcels compare most favourably with those from other parts of the Empire."
  Dr. Crowe is widely known in this district having been located at Minden for several years. Mrs. Crowe has been in England for over two years and is one of the officials at Canada House. Dr. Crowe is a veteran of the last Great War.

This card is part of a larger collection of World War II personnel clippings. The project began in 1944 at the Lindsay Library. The intent was to gather together as much information as possible on the military record and the service of people from the Town of Lindsay and the County of Victoria (now Kawartha Lakes) who served in the war. To that end, during the years 1944, 1945, and 1946, members of the public donated photographs and updated information about their loved ones. Both library staff and the public saved and donated newspaper clippings. Some of the files contain great amounts of detail, while others have just a name.
