    Jean Hubbard, now aged 92, joined the Canadian Women’s Army Corps on her eighteenth birthday. Wearing her red and white polka-dotted dress, she is likely the only recruit ever welcomed into the armed forces with a birthday cake! I visited Jean recently at her lovely home in West Vancouver, B.C., where she told me all about it. Read my interview here: www.elinorflorence.com/blog/jean-hubbard-cwac

    Once again Elinor, you have produced a gem. I love reading your blog entries. Jean looks great at 92.
