Bromley, Mrs. ([18--]-[19--])

Biographical history

Mrs. Bromley's husband served with Canadian forces in France during World War I. She received a letter from Sister E.B. Burpee, No. 1 Canadian General Hospital in France, 5 August 1917, informing her that her husband has "absorbed some of this terrible gas poison" and that he is seriously ill.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The collection consists of the letter to Mrs. Bromley and well as two photgraphs of presumably Canadian troops. One is a postcard photograph. The other is identified as "C sub-section, A.S.C. Section, G.H.Q., 3rd Echelon" and was taken in Rouen, France in September 1916. On the verso of the photograph are signatures of the soldiers -- some of them have very small pasted photographs beside their signatures.
