Introduction I am a recently retired high school Social Studies teacher with family connections to Salmon River Lake and Giant's Lake, Guysborough County. I am currently researching the stories of First World War veterans who were born and/or lived in Guysborough County and welcome any information that readers can provide - biographical facts, pictures, letters or documents. I am focusing on the veterans who died during or shortly after the war and self-published the first of two volumes, outlining the background and experiences of 72 individuals who died during the first three years of Canadian overseas service (1915 - 17). Please contact me at the e-mail address posted on this blog if you have information to share or questions about any posts. I have recently added a second blog—"Harry's 85th Diary"—at , outlining the experiences of Henry Harris "Harry" Murray, a Pictou County native who enlisted with the 85th Battalion in September 1915 and was a member of its accomplished band.
