Hi Ladies

My Mum was a warbride and landed at Pier 21 from Liverpool I am trying to find out what her ship was. I have the date of March 26th I think it was 1943 or 1946 . her name was Phyllis Downes her husband Jim was with the Regina Rifles and she was coming to Merritton Ontario Canada. may have went on to Toronto and on from there to her home.

My son has written a book of poems on the war and if he can get help publishing it is going to donate some money to our Veterans , he has some beautiful poems in it if you are interested email me and I will put you in touch with him.
