Military Monday: War Bride Story

Mention of war brides who married Canadian WW2 servicemen in the UK and made a life in Canada is overdue on the blog.

Newmarket Today published the story of Monica Frampton who married Queen’s Own Rifles soldier Howard Sisler in 1942 and arrived in Canada in 1946. Her sister Yvonne followed her and married a Sisler brother.

Back in November 2021, I quoted an estimate of 700 war bride survivors for the end of that year. That’s now likely below 500.
