Women of the Red Cross — Mary Slade –Larry Clark

Standard
Women of the Red Cross — Mary Slade –Larry Clark
Linda–I saw a post of yours that had a little girl talking on the telephone and thought you might be interested in the one below. Mary Slade is my wife Beth’s aunt (deceased). I have no other info about the photo except that she looks to be in her late teens, early twenties-I just guessed at the year on the photo.  I started with the thought of just sending this photo but then realized that there was more to this story. She joined the Red Cross in 1942 and in 1944 served overseas for 9 months in London. Rest of story below! Former Carleton Place resident –Larry Clark
Mary had a long time relationship with Giles but they did not marry.  In the late 40s Mary met and in 1950, married Frank Smith and they settled in Hartford CN.
