  1. Interesting about the Italian grandfather’s arrest in Toronto. I had a chum years back, a neighbour whose father was arrested on a Quebec airbase, where he had happily been working for years. He was kept in prison in Old Fort Henry, In Kingston Ontario until after the war. He was German. Cheers, BT
