Do you remember the early days of Camp Petawawa
By Hilda Young
Since moving to the area in 2001, I have enjoyed hearing some of the stories. I would love to hear more of your stories as I propose writing these stories up in blog form to tell them as quickly as possible then to create a book for the 150th anniversary of the life of the community which supported the soldiers in the early days.
So far I have heard from Sharon Slaney and Chris van Camp, Jim MacKenzie, Frank Russell, Jack and Elaine Chalmers and several others. Each person has a unique viewpoint and selective memory! I have been fortunate to be lent or given newspaper articles and photos.
