A report was presented by the City Relief Committee at the Port Arthur City Council meeting of October
13, 1914. While we unfortunately do not have the text of this report, it seems to relate to the creation
of a new Patriotic Association. Councillors Frederick Urry and Sidney Wilson would serve on the first
version of this Association.City Council Minutes


Over the years of the war, the Patriotic Association would provide financial support to disadvantaged
citizens, in conjunction with the City Relief Committee.

Soldiers' Letters

The Fort William Daily Times Journal and the Port Arthur Daily News respectfully solicited letters from soldiers at the front - or extracts therefrom - during the First World War. Any reader who had a letter from a relative or friend with the British, French or Russian forces was invited to submit said letter for publication to the community.
