Other Home Front Subjects
The Summerside newspapers carried considerable news about the war and how it affected Islanders. Despite the emphasis on Prince Edward Island, much of the general information about wartime living can be applied to any part of Canada. Some of the home front issues not addressed in this website are listed below. If you have an interest in any of these subjects we have included at least one source of information available on the World Wide Web.
