It was February, 1942, in what could be called the middle of World War II, when I received my call-up to the Armed Forces. As I remember, I was neither surprised nor concerned. The War had raged on since September, 1939 and many hundreds of thousands of men had already lost their lives in the skies, on land, and at sea. The Western Allies had not yet turned the tide against Germany but were surely preparing.
 
Memoirs of a World War II Canadian Soldier - "Lucky Guy" tells his story in a nutshell, says Didmon. "Day to day experiences from my first day in Newmarket, Ontario Basic Training camp until, 1400 days of sadness, courage, love, & humour later, I stepped off the troop train at the C.N.E. in Toronto after the war."

 Trying to trace a Pte Jack/John GOODALE, Canadian Army WW2. Possibly in RCAMC 5 Field Hygiene Section. Was he stationed in Southern England early 1943?
