Donald Ian Cameron (1912-1998) and Della Ileen Cameron (1912-2000) taken at The Chevron Studio in Victoria British Columbia. I think it operated from 1943-1950. Ian was in the Canadian Navy during World War II and was posted to Victoria for part of his time in the service.

“D.I.Cameron v.40088 HMCS Ganonoque, c/o F.M.O, Halifax, N.S. Sept 20/44                   Dear Mother: Sorry I could not get back for harvest, but guess you are getting along as best you can. How is the wheat running this year? Have they got over the summer fallow again? If not it will be in pretty bad shape. How did you get over your trip to Wpg.? As ever, Ian”.  There is an interesting article in Wikipedia on the HMCS Ganonoque, a minesweeper built in Toronto and launched in April 1941. It served off the east coast of Canada as a convoy escort.
