Colin Murray who served with the 27th Canadian Infantry Brigade at the time it was based in Hannover, Germany as part of Canada's contribution to NATO.
Bereik en inhoud
The fonds consists of correspondence, photographs and artwork. There are three letters associated with Clingan: one letter he wrote as a child to his father, one letter from A. Clingan that discusses him during World War I, and a third letter from a pal of his written on 9 January 1916. There are sixteen letters written by his son-in-law Lt. Colin Murray to his wife from Hannover in 1953. Graphic material includes a portrait of Clingan during World War II taken in Kirkgate, Yorks. and a caricature of him (pencil, ink, water-colour) at Aldershot in 1941. There are photographs of the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa in 1940 and 1942; the Stoney Creek Band; the 260th Barracks, 2nd River; a Canadian troopship bound for Siberia; picture postcards of Vladivostock, and unidentified military photographs. Most of the photographs were removed from frames – numbers are written on the verso but their meaning is not known. Also in the fonds is a photograph of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, at a military base, a kilt pin, printed “Returned Soldiers’ Insurance” certificates issued to Clingan in 1930, and a printed issue of the Cameron Highlanders’ Journal from 1939. Clingan’s medals were sold at Bonhams in May 2009 and do not form part of this fonds.
