Throughout the collection, the creator, Jan Briggs-McGowan has interwoven pages from Veteran's Affairs Canada's Book of Remembrance
The collection makes reference to the newsletter, "The '52 Natural': Voice of the Canadian Grenadier Guards."
Copies of selected newsletters are available for viewing with the physical collection at the Lindsay branch library. A sample has been included in this digital collection.
A number of names are listed in the index but do not have corresponding pages in the collection. Their snippets of information have been included in the Addendum
where you can find links to the individual records.
In 2005, the Year of the Veteran, Briggs-McGowan and others interviewed as many war veterans as possible for the purpose of recording their memories. These interviews were written up and collected as the Memory Project
