about how Eddy felt about the war…

Click to zoom in…

Eddy had written this caption.

My friends in Smiths Falls, Ontario.
Birthday party for Cecil Sommes on my right.
Most of these boys were killed in the war.

I saw their names on the War Memorial near the Rideau Canal locks and felt sick at heart.

I felt like putting my brother Laurent’s name there as well.

Here’s a family picture taken in 1942…

Eddy in the center with Laurent on his left.
Their father Honoré is on the left.
Juliette Sauvé is in front with two daughters Gisèle and Honora

I wonder if someone could tell us more about Cecil Sommes…

These are the names Eddy saw on the War Memorial.
