Canada Remembers

1. In what ways was the outbreak of war “a marvellous release from poverty and drudgery” for Sara Johnson? Would this have been typical for other women of that time? How did her experiences change Sara?

2. According to Jean Danard, what were some of the difficulties faced by women in the service?

3. Why did it take courage for Agnes Brunning to volunteer for factory work near Toronto?

4. What evidence is given to suggest that the work at DIL was dangerous? Would these working conditions be allowed today? Explain

5. Why is Agnes described (with others) as an “unsung heroine” and what do you understand by this description?
