My dad was T. Don Wallace. I have some of his old South Saskatchewan pictures. Also a cartoon that appeared in the Maple Leaf in WW2. It is very funny. Each year on Rememberance Day I take all the things Dad had, medals, id cards etc. to school to remind the students that those soldiers were real people. Its a good hands on lesson.
If I can get them copied would you like them?"
