A look back through an excerpt from The Courtenaian, Journal of the Courtenay Public Schools, Vancouver Island, B.C.
Vol. 1. No. 2. November, 1914
“On Monday, Nov. 2nd, the pupils of Divisions I and II went up to the station to say good-bye and give three cheers to the men who are going to the front. The platform was well crowded with people, and we had to wait quite a while before the train started. As the train pulled out we gave three hearty cheers to the Courtenay men who are answering the call of duty.”
