This week I'm blogging from my ancestral home of Port Moody, British Columbia. So, here's a little CanCon for your delectation. If you liked that, you'll love this collection of vintage Canadian toy soldiers. [Broken link, now fixed. Leads to real Canadian toy soldiers.]
I found this site because my great uncle Martin was waxing nostalgic about a lanyard he had in World War II. I thought maybe I could find him one online. Unfortunately, even Google couldn't deliver the goods. If anyone could tell me what kind of lanyard Canadian infantrymen used to suspend their dog tags in Germany in 1945, I'd be eternally grateful. Martin has searching for a replacement for almost 50 years now.
