Good Afternoon Everyone.......

I was called this morning by a friend who used to run a 2nd hand book store and was told that he had purchased a number of items over the week end and in the bottom of a box of goodies he found a number of envelopes...... He took a look at them and gave me a call as he thought that I may be interested......

The envelopes were the old fashioned type kraft paper and were un-labeled as to their contents..... On opening the envelopes I found the following, some hand written and some typed and some very poorly spirit copied......

There are as follows......

1. Diary of William A. Hare, “D” Battery, R.C.F.A.
2. Hand Written Diary, 1899/1901 Name Unknown (will have to read closely and check names mentioned to find out common unit)
3. A number of Letters from Various Notable Persons to General Hutton including Commissioner Herchmer of the Northwest Mounted Police, on the supply and conduct of the war.
4. The Murder of “Gat” Howard by J.O.O. LeValle 17/04/02
5. Builders of Empire, (1901), Lt. J. D. McCrae, R.C.F.A. (Author of In Flanders Fields)
6. Observations on the Battle of Lillifontein, by H. W. Davy
7. Orders, Decorations and Mentions for the Anglo-Boer War (c/w Citations if published)
a. 2nd S.S. Battalion Royal Canadian Regiment
b. 1st Canadian Mounted Rifles / (renamed) Royal Canadian Dragoons
c. 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles / (renamed) 1st Canadian Mounted Rifles
d. Strathcona's Horse
e. Royal Canadian Artillery
f. 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles
g. Canadian Scouts
8. Daily Operational Diaries for the Anglo-Boer War
a. 2nd Bn. (Special Service) Royal Canadian Regiment
b. 1st Canadian Mounted Rifles / (renamed) Royal Canadian Dragoons
c. 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles / (renamed) 1st Canadian Mounted Rifles
d. Strathcona's Horse
e. 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles
9. Non-Boer War – Official Report of the Overseas Troops Entertainment Fund 1937 including Nominal Rolls of the Members of the Empire's Coronation Contingents.

It looks like I will have a lot of reading and transcribing to the forum to do over the next while....

Thank God I have a number of friends here in the city......
