Bill (William) Russell McNeil II (1924-2003)

Sierra Club


We were used to sudden death in Glace Bay. Men were frequently getting killed in the mines, but we wern't used to having our young people die on distant shores so that we couldn't mourn at a wake and a funeral. If this was war we didn't like it, but we would certainly get used to it. Again and again and again. - from Voices of a War Remembered
