Obituaries
WW I ~ WW II

 

Besides those who died, another 335 members of the Unit were repatriated to Newfoundland due to injuries or illness. They travelled in small groups on 47 crossings between the 20th of April, 1940 and the 29th of April, 1946. The S.S. Drottningholm of the Swedish-American Line played a prominent role in these transatlantic journeys, crossing may times with Newfoundland and Canadian service personnel.
