Jul 21, 2013 The Women Who Crossed an Ocean

The Women Who Crossed an Ocean

Most came from Scotland...others from England. Close to 800 of them. The war brides. The women who fell in love with Newfoundland servicemen during the Great Wars...the women who crossed an ocean to be with their husbands. For better or for worse.
