Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of my readers!
Here’s a particularly relevant piece from my collection, a Christmas card send from PoWs to one of their captors. This card is addressed to Sergeant-Major James Ogilvie Thomson, a member of the Veterans’ Guard who was employed as the camp quartermaster at Camp 133 in Lethbridge, Alberta. The PoW-produced card is signed by seven PoWs, all of whom were employed in the enclosure quartermaster office. In a somewhat rare scenario, Thomson and his former charges kept in touch after the war and I am fortunate to have a number of pieces of their correspondence.
