This is a letter written by Sgt Reid’s brother- Donald Calderwood Reid about how his brother died in battle.

My grandmother- Jennie Reid (5 Aug 1918-22 Dec 1998) , a genealogist and author who wrote Musquodoboit Pioneers would be fascinated by the history and stories she would have been able to pull from these letters from family.

If you have Canadian family members who have served in the wars, The Canadian Letters and Images Project is a fantastic place to have your historical roots come alive.

I will always remember the sacrifices made by all to preserve our freedoms!
