I have a small correction to make to a Historical Lens letter by Florence Quaife on May 15th. It was the Second World War not the First in which Elmer Howard and Lloyd served their country and Elmer sadly lost his life. All the Palmer children attended (as did I) the Althamer Invermere consolidated school. Elmer was about my age. I was in Beech a few years ago with his granddaughter Ann Wagstaff, who lives in Cranbrook.
