I’ve been a faithful subscriber for many years and always look forward to the variety of topics covered in each issue. “The ‘Farmerettes’” (September 2018) was especially interesting, as the author and I share a common background: our ancestors came from Great Britain and eventually settled in Wolseley, Sask. My father fought with the Regina Rifles during the Second World War, leaving my mother and me behind. His father, brother and cousins maintained the farmlands, so my mother didn’t become a “farmerette” until my dad returned and they set up their own farming operation in 1946. Thank you for sharing this important and almost forgotten era of Canadian history with your readers. Keep up the good work!
