100 Years Ago: C.N.R. Staff Bid Messrs. V. Nicholson and Norman Dawkins Farewell

The Intelligencer June 11, 1918 (page 5)

“Farewell to Soldiers. A pleasant event took place last evening at the C.N.R. passenger station in a gathering of members of the staff of the C.N.R. passenger freight and express departments here to say farewell to two comrades who have entered the military service. Messrs. V. Nicholson and Norman Dawkins were the guests of honor and addresses of appreciation were read, accompanied by gifts of a wrist watch to Mr. Nicholson, and a gold mounted pipe and case to Mr. Dawkins.

The presentations were made on behalf of the C. N. R. staff and employees of the express companies by Mr. E. M. Fiske, C. N. R. freight agent, who voiced the warm friendship felt for the two young men and best wishes for their military career. Appropriate replies were made by Messrs. Nicholson and Dawkins.”
