Milne Brothers and Sister in the Canadian Armed Forces
Remembering my Dad, Charlie, Uncle Ross, Uncle Bob, Aunt Ida and Uncle Les Crowie.
Dad and Uncle Bob married overseas and returned home with their English war brides, Bet and Kath, and daughters, Jane and Ann.
Uncle Ross was wounded at Caen but recovered and returned to service. On his return to Canada he was reunited with his wife, Annie and daughter Betty, and met daughter Joan for the first time. She was born shortly after he went overseas.
Aunt Ida served at various bases in Canada. She married her soldier, Uncle Al, near the end of the war.
While Uncle Les was serving, his wife, Aunt Rose, worked at the DIL munitions plant in Ajax as one of the “Bomb Girls”.
