Por­trait of an un­known sol­dier

The Compass - - Editorial -

I am seek­ing in­for­ma­tion on a First World War sol­dier.

I re­cently pur­chased a por­trait of a First World War sol­dier from an an­tique store in cen­tral New­found­land. It’s in an oval frame with bub­ble glass. The only in­for­ma­tion I have is writ­ten on the back and is as fol­lows: 8359 & Mrs. M.J. Ni­chols, Digby, N.S. This pic­ture sup­pos­edly came from the Gan­der Bay area of New­found­land some time ago.

Any in­for­ma­tion, how­ever small, would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. Hope­fully some­body out there can iden­tify him as I would dearly love to give this sol­dier back his name.

I can be reached at (709) 2272754.

Thanks so much. Bren­dan Collins writes from Pla­cen­tia
