Unexploded Ordnance in Vancouver
This letter refers to an event circa 1918. It does refer to the 31st Battery, 15th Field Brigade, Canadian Field Artillery and that would place it sometime between 1920 and 1925. Was it presented to the unit in 1938? Did Mr Hunt keep it in his basement for almost 20 years? What's with these shells lying in ditches at the corner of 4th Avenue and Maple in Kitsilano? Apparently others have been found as well. Possibly fired not less than 70 or 80 years ago? Also found on the small island to the west of the Howe Sound light house. Definitely a Vancouver mystery! Where were those naval practice ranges set up?
