The War Years: Peter & Kathleen Inkster, 1942-45 Family Story Studio, 2022, pp. 42 (Writer, Editor, Design & Layout)
Kathleen Hattie and Peter Inkster married during WWII, on January 29, 1942. It was such a simple affair that no photos were taken. Peter had just joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps (RCAMC), so his life wasn't completely his own anymore; he had to telegram his commanding officer to marry.
Their time together would be short-lived. On June 10, Peter and the No. 16 Canadian General Hospital left Vancouver by train. They were on their way to England. On the train across Canada, he wrote: "I miss you so much now darling - daring chances must be taken." Letters, photos, mementoes and memories tell the story of an ordinary couple experiencing separation and war. Little did they know that 3 1/2 years would pass before they would see each other and embark on married life together again..
