With Canada at the Front


The British Empire to most native-born Canadians as a great institution, represented visually by large red spaces on the map of the world. The experience of going over to England for the war. A reading from a letter the speaker wrote at the time, with the sentiments and sensations shared by approximately 30,000 more people crossing the ocean, giving us an impression of what it meant to native-born Canadians to first get in touch with the heart of things of the British Empire. A brief outline of the organization of the army. A description of Army Headquarters; the makeup of a Division; what the raw troops do; the makeup of a Brigade, all interspersed with personal and illustrative anecdotes. Life in the trenches; a vivid and detailed description, from the personal viewpoint of the speaker.
