SL History blog at work – more on Badger family

In response to the inquiry by Heather Badger Koch, Christian Cassidy sent this comment:

Hi there ! I am a fellow Manitoba History Blogger (West End Dumplings and This Was Manitoba.) I did some searching through the Winnipeg Free Press and came across some rosters. What year are we looking at ?

I’ve posted a few samples at my photo page as well as a couple of articles where Mr. Badger’s name appears. You should be able to see the article images at if you can’t or would like the files directly, email me at

My reply:

Hi Christian,

Thanks for your help with this. I check out West End Dumplings frequently and encourage my readers to do the same. Reid

Heather: in the Free Press articles that Christian has on his Flickr site, there is a picture and caption of Bill and Doug and the man who saved them getting a citation from the mayor and mention of the SL team including a Badger in the 1941 article. I’ll bet that was your grandpa. The rest of team is named by surname only.  The power of the blogosphere!!
