Documented with the help of two excerpts from the War Diary of the Public Relations Group overseas, is the unfortunate tale of Sgt. Lloyd Frank Millon, a member of the Canadian Army Film & Photo. In an undated letter, (sometime in early 1943) to then Captain Lawrence Audrain*, Lloyd Millon expresses an interest in joing the CFPU;…
