The 72nd Seaforth Highlanders were a group of Scots-Canadians, often referred to as the Ladies from Hell," known for their Mackenzie tartan kilts, their bayonets, their bagpipes and the action they saw while stationed in France where most of the Great War was fought. But in the stories Childs has chosen to share in Little Memories, are not those of brutal destruction and bloody battle scenes, but of those more personal moments. Moments when he crouches nervously with his comrades in a foxhole before "going over the top," or sits alone quietly on a hillside and unearths a small doll while viewing the ravages of the village below. These short missives were published in his local newspaper while he served his country.
