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 http://www.flickr.com/photos/christiansphotos/ if you can’t or would like the files directly, email me at email@example.com
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!!
