On November 11th, 2009, I went to the Imperial War Museum in London to view the two Canadian Red Cross quilts held in their collection.
What follows is the story of one of them, a rare Roll of Honour quilt, recording the men and women from a rural district of Saskatchewan who served in the armed forces in World War II.
The research shows the design of the quilt, details about the location where it was made, about the lives of the men and women recorded in its blocks, and what is known about the making of the quilt.
This research is dedicated to those serving men and women of Canada, and to the women civilians who made their own considerable contributions to the war effort.
