New first stanza for THE MAPLE LEAF FOREVER
(composed by Art Currie)
“From sea to sea, Our Land is free,
Our rivers, lakes and forests, The prairies vast and mountains high,
Our nation lays before us, And so we stand for the good and true,
And we will stand that way together, Across our grand Dominion as One
The Maple Leaf Forever.”

The Jack Kipling identification has been getting a lot of coverage lately. It appears that after only 24 years, the doubters have conceded that the original report from 1992 was, in fact, correct. For those who don’t know, I wrote that report when Record Officer of the CWGC in Maidenhead, England. For YOUR EYES ONLY the report is in this email. It’s odd but I am not mentioned in any of these articles, and no one bothered to contact me (very odd). My feelings are very hurt. If you have any questions please contact me.
