Telegram from Adjutant General to John W. Baker, 14 October 1915
It was through the tersely-worded medium of the telegram that Canadian families received messages regarding the well-being of loved ones at the Front. While the telegraphic message could relate exploits of valour and advancement of a soldier, more frequently they conveyed official regret over the injury, or loss of life in the line of duty.
