San Iuchar 2009, rinn Melynda Jarratt, an tè as eòlaiche air Mnathan-bainnse Chanada a' Chogaidh, òraid air a' chuspair sin aig Leabharlann Inbhir Pheofharain. Còmhla rithe bha Zoe Boone, tè de mhnathan na bainnse sin, às Obar Dheathain. Sa phìos chlaistinneach seo tha Zoe ag innse mar a bha cùisean dhi fhèin aig an àm.

'One of the people in the office came to me and he'd left what the man thought was money in case I didn't have any dollars and booked me into a hotel and got me a ticket on the train down the next night to New Brunswick. And I went to the hotel, well, in the early hours of the morning and then the church bells woke me up at six o' clock in the morning. But I had boots on all right, I was prepared for that but they had leather soles on them and that's no good on ice. Anyway, I, the next morning I got up, went to the dining room and I asked for boiled eggs. Well, I, does anyone know how they serve boiled eggs in Canada? They serve them in a glass with a great big lump of butter and that wasn't what I wanted. And a big Danish pastry. Well now, you go here, you want boiled eggs, you hadn't had any for a long time. Anyway, I settled that but I went down and investigated and saw that I had a sleeper on the train and I was all set to leave at six or seven o' clock that night. And all the office girls from Ottawa were going home for Christmas, it was the 20th December and they were all going, and of course I met all these young people and it was all exciting. And I got to McAdam and my husband had driven, he had come up to Montreal to meet me but there'd been a snow storm and he had to go home ahead of it. And he'd driven all the way to Montreal, all the way back and out to McAdam to meet me and he was bleary-eyed to say the least. But we took the train up to Perth and his father and brother met us there and I got a Cook's tour all the way home, my father-in-law told me and this is the Indian reservation and this is where they do that, but there was still twelve feet of snow. Anyway, I had a welcome when I got there and I've lived there for sixty-one years and the next year, in 48 we built a house and I've lived in there for sixty years. And I've been satisfied and I want to commend Melynda for putting the War Brides down in history, for telling our story as it is, the good, the bad and the ugly.'

[laughter]

Thank you.'
