Wait for Me Daddy - British_Columbia_Regiment_1940

A heart rendering photo of a little boy who wants to go with his Dad.

Photo taken by Claude P. Dettloff on October 1, 1940, of The British Columbia Regiment (Duke of Connaught’s Own Rifles) marching down Eighth Street at the Columbia Avenue intersection, New Westminster, Canada.

While Dettloff was taking the photo, Warren “Whitey” Bernard ran away from his mother to his father, Private Jack Bernard. The picture received extensive exposure and was used in war-bond drives.
