“The 34th Battery arrived in Valcartier Saturday, August 29th. Men and horses detrained in fine condition, arrived on camp grounds about 3 p.m. in drizzling rain, which kept up for first two days. …  Sergt. Pat and Bom. Ted Yeomans, sons of Dr. Yeomans, Pinnacle street, are on the Brigade Staff. Both these boys are expert signalers and were chosen for this responsible position by the director of artillery. …

Gunner Yerex is worrying over that girl of his on Bridge Street West. Joe Cadwell also can be heard heaving heavy sighs and whistling softly: ‘I am Wearing My Heart Away for You, Louise.’ – soft music, please! …  Respectfully, Spafford.”
