"Thank you to Dorothy McKnight for her articles taken from "Anniecat Chronicles." She chose some writings from the book which depicted wartime in Sault Ste. Marie - a town heavily fortified because of the shipping which passed through the locks on the St. Mary's River. Through no fault of hers, there are a couple of figures which need correcting. The exact number of troops sent to defend the Soo was 7,300. The exact number of barrage balloons needs some investigation ... but "dozens" would not be a correct estimate. I would not want her readers to think, even considering my age, that I had tried to rewrite history!"
