Comments:In honour of my Grandfather Private Adam Robertson Kennedy, who joined the PPCLI as the 109th person to sign up. He had been badly wounded in Ypres, and numerous other locations, mustard gassed, shot, and bayoneted, yet, he always left the field hospitals to resume active duty, proudly seeing Vimy fall into Canadian hands. He never talked about the War, it was too extreme, and could never wear a poppy without tears, as he said in Belgium, the blood spilled to mingle with the red corn poppies. He was later badly wounded, and as the war ended, shipped home to Christie Street Hospital. I bless him, and all those, who so bravely served our country. I will never forget! Deborah Garrick
