NFHS General Meeting
November 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Yvonne Van Ruskenveld, Victoria, BC
Yvonne will speak on “War Brides”. Yvonne has told me her mother-in-law, Elsie, was a war bride from Glasgow. She said she would be happy to talk about war brides. Apparently, Yvonne’s interest in World War 1 arose out of her historical walking tours in Ross Bay Cemetery where many Great War veterans are memorialized. She has also given presentations on soldier memorials, nursing sisters, prisoners of war, the Royal Flying Corps in North America, and the cycle corps of the CEF. She is a member of the Western Front Association-Pacific Coast Branch, the Old Cemeteries Society of Victoria, and the Victoria Historical Society.
