The foundation of this photo diary was a scrapbook created by Marion Swinton, from Hamilton, Ontario. Although Marion passed away several years ago, a caring neighbour kept her well-preserved scrapbook of photographic and written memories. It was given to the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies (LCMSDS), and that gift has resulted in this publication. The scrapbook chronicles Marion Swinton's time in the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service (WRCNS) during the Second World War. Marion compiled her scrapbook using photos, memorabilia, letters, and stories from her time as a Wren, as members of the WRCNS were called. The photographs and captions paint a picture of the joy, the fears, and the anticipation of a young woman living out a great adventure. It documents in meticulous detail the events that shaped Marions early twenties and in many ways the rest of her life. Published by the Laurier Centre for Military, Strategic and Disarmament Studies and distributed by Wilfrid Laurier University Press.
