Welcome. Here you will find my father’s story of growing up in Cape Breton and serving overseas in World War II. It is dramatic, down-to-earth and quintessentially “down home”. Also, I have posted another digital book, “Up the Humber To The West”, a story of my Doucette family’s past and our link to the voyageurs. I joke that it should be called, “How the Doucettes discovered Canada”, but Canada didn’t need discovering. From time immemorial it was the home of Canada’s First Nations and never lost, never needing “discovery”.
