Joseph Ready Letter

Joseph Ready, a Pilot Officer of Kensington, P.E.I was killed in April of 1941 while flying with a Royal Air Force Squadron based at Detling in Kent, England. He wrote a letter to his sister and brother in light of what appeared to him to be the likelihood of certain death on active service during the Second World War. The letter was received by his family and later printed in Prince Edward Island newspapers and several magazines.

Operation Teapot

In the spring of 1955, nuclear test explosions were conducted in a Nevada, Las Vegas desert.

Local Veteran Interview

Many Veterans are reluctant to speak of their traumatic and difficult experiences of their involvement in the war. To bring up such painful memories from over 50 years ago is understandably a difficult thing to do. One local Veteran of Kensington, Wally Thompson was an exception to this and provided a few cheerful memories of his time spent overseas during the Second World War. Wally joined the Army in Beach Grove Prince Edward Island and was only there 2 weeks before they sent the draft overseas, where he would later do his basic training.
