Letter of Introduction, 29 May 1917
After the initial success of Doughty and Lanctôt’s archival reconnaissance in the fall of 1916, the Dominion Government officially sanctioned a "Canadian Special Mission" to further survey War records in Europe in the spring of 1917. This letter was intended to inform British and Canadian forces of the nature and importance of their presence in Europe.
