War brides reunion being hosted in Victoria

Variety of activities planned at Fairmont Empress Hotel

The Canadian War Brides and Families Association is hosting its annual reunion in Victoria, April 12 to 14 at the Fairmont Empress Hotel.

There were 48,000 war brides and 22,000 children who crossed the Atlantic to join Canadian husbands and fathers.

War bride numbers have diminished over the decades. But thousands of war bride children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are out there and all are invited to attend and take part in the many fun events planned.
