The Connecting Dots!

Often when I have written a story on an individual or event for the RCMP Vets I talk of the connecting dots…how one story leads to another.   Sometimes it takes a few years for the dots to connect.   Back in 2013 I did a story for the Vancouver Division web site on an unusual clasp on a RCMP LSM medal located in the Seaforth Highlanders Museum in Vancouver….see link below for the story.

Ric Hall’s: Mystery of Maple Leaf Clasp

This week-end, nine years later, I received a message from the granddaughter of one of the names mentioned in my story, Staff Sergeant Major Frank Trehearne, Reg # 16570.   At the time I could not locate a photograph of S/S/M Trehearne.  His granddaughter found my story on-line and sent me a photo of her grandfather.
Love those connecting dots!
