An update to the question asked below.
I am finally starting to get to grips with what Woburn House and Bloomsbury House were, and what part they played in our Kitchener history. It has taken a while, in part because many of the existing sources assume a level of knowledge that I don’t have, and unpacking it all has taken a bit of time.
Anyway, there’s now a first draft of information at the following link, and there will also be about 4 minutes of film footage added, hopefully, in the next few days, as the owner is very kindly going to allow us to upload it to the project.
A quick post this evening … and it’s a request for help rather than a piece of new information.
A student has got in touch who is looking into her grandfather’s history – from incarceration, to Kitchener camp, to Canada.
She wishes to contextualise what she finds to include some of the wider history.
Something she has got stuck on – and I have to say that I sympathise, because I am similarly stuck for ideas here – is in trying to find out something about the role of Woburn House (and later Bloomsbury House) in the Kitchener rescue.
Many thanks – and Chag Sameach – or a Happy Easter!
