Emerson Ladd Curry - 1916

In Canada we observe Remembrance Day on November 11, and I thought that for this year, I'd do this blog and simply link folks through to an article I did a few years back on my Grandfather - Emerson Ladd Curry.
Grampy was in WW1 and 2, serving as a soldier in WW1, where he was 100 years ago almost to the day, involved in the battles of Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele - where in the latter battle he was buried alive by a mortar shell collapsing his trench. Grampy was sent to a hospital in Belgium, and then to France and eventually to England. There, he met my grandmother, was sent home, found out his father had died, and so returned and married the young woman who had served him soup.
Emerson Curry's story is an interesting one, and the fact we have photographs makes it that much more powerful.
The ability of photography to help tell a story and record the past.
May we live in the virtue of that life that takes away the occasion of all wars.
