    I’m pretty sure you are right about “snaps”. Very English term for photos.

  2. 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?
