Battalion Events – July 7, 1916

According to a two-penny postcard from Private Reg Fowler to his mother, Mrs. John Fowler of R.R. 5, Goderich, ON, mailed on July 7, 1916, “We leave for Camp Borden on Sunday, July 9 (1916). I’m feeling fine and ready to go. It will likely be about three weeks before I get home. Hope you’re all well.”
