(PH002318)
- May/44, p.4 – (W-3080) #1 Station HMCS Bytown % FMO Ottawa Ont. “Received the News letter today and believe me I enjoyed it. Have been residing at Rideau Military Hospital this past two weeks with a little throat trouble. My big brother Frank is still in Italy and has a little to say about the liquid refreshment over there. He is in the best of health. Say hello to Doug Taylor and tell him to save me one of his delicious milk shakes. I’ll be home to collect it for Christmas.”
- Nov/44, p.1 – Moresby House HMCS Givenchy FMO Esquimalt BC “Grace Scott jumps into the money as a Leading Wren.”
- Jul/46, p16 - “Recruiting for the “Wrens” was spasmodic. It never reached the proportions demanded by the air or military forces. Only two local girls were in the feminine tars’ sections of the forces. These were Frances Hughes and Grace Scott. Both girls saw over two years of service. Frances was attached to HMCS Stadacona at Halifax, after training at Galt; Grace commuted between east and west and was first attached to HMCS Bytown at Ottawa; and later transferred to HMCS Givenchy, at Esquimalt.”
