Scope and content

Series forms part of Anna Barbara Webber family fonds and consists of records related to Blois Webber’s military service during the Second World War from 1943 to 1945. Blois was a Private in the 1st Battalion of the Regina Rifle Regiment, trained at Camp Borden, Ontario, and was wounded in action in Belgium on February 18, 1945. Series includes letters from Blois to his sister Frances Robson and one letter to Frances’ husband Doug Robson, including one letter to Frances written a week after he was wounded. Series also includes two telegrams from Ottawa to Frances informing her of Blois’ injuries. In addition are two pay books and a wartime devotional book possessed by Blois Webber. Inserted into the pages of the devotional book is a slip of paper containing information about Blois’ rank and training company. Series also includes a five franc note with the date October 11, 1944 written on it, which was originally housed in a billfold and was probably acquired by Blois in Europe as a souvenir. Series also includes a letter from Leonard Stanley Webber to his cousin Emma, written sometime during the First World War while Leonard was in active service in the Canadian Expeditionary Force.
