The beautiful Cathedral Church of St. James
in Toronto hosted a most impressive display of the Chaplaincy
Services in the Canadian Military.
This picture hung for one hundred years in the Old Homestead
until we donated it to the Chaplain’s Memorabilia room and thence here.
The display stretched down both side aisles.
News of the Canadian win in 1900 in Paardeberg…
...and the announcement of the declaration of war in 1914.
Over two hundred people attended this opening of the exhibit.
As we strolled through the exhibit, drinks and hors d’oeuvres
were handed round and a superb trio played music.
David Appleyard gave me a splendid, though undeserved, introduction.
After which I spoke about the books in The Alford Saga
which dealt with the chaplaincy.
