On QMS parade. Got paid. Went to Folkestone at night. Had snaps taken.
I’m pretty sure you are right about “snaps”. Very English term for photos.
Frank’s father (my great-grandfather) immigrated to Canada from England as a teenager with his family, so Frank would have grown up hearing English expressions — makes sense that they would find their way into his journal after spending a month or two there.
Totally. I revert to “English” very quickly when I go back. Mind you, I was 8 when I came to Canada, and so my vocabulary is that of an 8-yr-old, not that of an adult.
By the way, any idea what the S.O.S. is for?
