Two Mission residents are interviewed about their memories of World War I and World War II. They recall the conditions under which the Canadian infantry fought, and the crisis precipitated by sub-standard equipment such as the Ross rifle. They remember the importance of cavalry units to the Canadian troops, and such public figures as Sir Sam Hughes and General Hay. They also discuss the arrival of British war brides in Mission.
