The war years - World War 1

When war was declared and Canada was called to arms Charles went into the manufacture of munitions in Montreal Quebec to assist the war effort, His son Arthur and wife Jeanne (my grandparents) worked in the plant.

The documents below are thank you cables sent to Canadian manufacturers and their workers once hostilities ceased in 1918.

Note that my grandmothers certificate has her home address as Verdun Quebec while her guarantor is Charles H. Taylor and it gives his shop office address in Toronto. By this time Charles was already married to Mable his second wife
