Quote from a letter sent to friends in Oshawa:
“Gramma was always a very motherly person anyway. She even mothered me, when I was 3,000 miles away from home for a year in Oshawa! Who else was specially kind apart from family? Doc Millman and his wife, and Sam McLaughlin of General Motors.”
Ian Fleming met Paul Dehn at Camp-X. This lead to a long and lasting friendship.
