While on her journey to Canada as a war bride, my grandmother wrote a very long letter to her parents back at home in Sheffield, England. It was more like a journal of the events that happened on board and the people she met while travelling across the Atlantic to Canada. It was sent to her parents shortly after she arrived in September 1919. The letter was returned to her in the 1930s after the death of her parents (minus a few pages) and later passed on to my father. It is a treasured family heirloom.
