Top: written on back of picture is: "Notice the little guy in the middle, how short, two soldiers, pals in the Montreal Regiment. Names? I am on the write hand side, I was nicknamed 'Tiny'. The little guy weighed 105 lbs. This picture was taken by the barracks. The little guy came up to the pockets of my tunic and I am 5'11.5" tall."
