Mike - an incredible find - and a valuable one from the historical and the financial sides.

Belfast was one of the later formal engagements - I thought Strathcona's had returned

    • I recall I did the same on hot days at Old Fort York back in 1973-74 - wool uniforms, and at 90F they would let you take your backpack off.   Michael
