What follows is a list of individual Canadian Red Cross Escort Officers who worked with the War Brides between 1944 and 1947. Because the Escort Officers represented every province in the Dominion, the women's names appear in order of the city and province they came from, starting in the East and moving across the country to Western Canada.
