It was February, 1942, in what could be called the middle of World War II, when I received my call-up to the Armed Forces. As I remember, I was neither surprised nor concerned. The War had raged on since September, 1939 and many hundreds of thousands of men had already lost their lives in the skies, on land, and at sea. The Western Allies had not yet turned the tide against Germany but were surely preparing. Memoirs of a World War II Canadian Soldier - "Lucky Guy" tells his story in a nutshell, says Didmon. "Day to day experiences from my first day in Newmarket, Ontario Basic Training camp until, 1400 days of sadness, courage, love, & humour later, I steppped off the troop train at the C.N.E. in Toronto after the war."

About the Author:

The author, Tom Didmon, was born in 1916 at Plumas, Manitoba. He moved with his family to Winnipeg in 1929 and completed his education there. Tom was fortunate in obtaining a job during the Depression at a Winnipeg meat-packing company. He left for Toronto in 1938 after successfully completing an Accounting Course and began working at Canada Pakers Ltd., another meat-packing company, until he joined the Canadian Army in 1942.

After the war, he went back to Canada Packers until his early retirement in 1974, when he moved to Vancouver Island, where he and Mrs. Didmon currently reside.
