To work on Keith Road School in morning. In afternoon I to Vancouver & met Hugh Neill at the Ferry Wharf. “We go to the C.P.R. Depot & see the 72nd Highland Regiment off to the war. (via Valcartier, Quebec) They left at 3:30 pm.” To Quirt’s & chat awhile. I leave Hugh at 5:30 pm & go to Theobald’s, where I have late dinner. Afterwards to Quirt’s (7:30 pm). Myrtle is not at home. I say good-bye to Mrs. & children & leave for Rex Theatre. Home to Lynn Valley at 10 pm.
*The 72nd Battalion, Seaforth Highlanders of Canada, were part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during WWI. They were mobilized out of Vancouver, and fought in France and Flanders though the entirety of WWI.
