Lindsay Officer sells Bonds to Troops


Two Army Ninth Victory Loan chiefs took some application forms aboard the Nieuw Amsterdam Saturday and one minute flat found two red-patched sergeants who decided to sign up before disembarking. So one of the first bonds sold in the forthcoming 9th Victory Loan Campaigns went to Sgt. D.A. Harber, of Halifax, shown signing on the dotted line while directly behind him awaiting his turn is Sgt. A.M. King, also of Halifax. The loan officers, extreme left and right are: Lieut. M.E. Dickerson, of Lindsay, special sales representative for the 9th Victory Committee in M.D. 6 and Major A.D. Grayston, E.D., chairman of the committee. (Canadian Army Photo).
