Author: Jim Mattern
A unique exhibit opens at the Diefenbaker Center on the University campus Saturday that commemorates the 60th Anniversary of the arrival of the first War Bride ship in Canada.

"One Way Passage: Canada's War Brides" by artist Bev Tosh looks at 52 women on their wedding day after arriving in Canada to marry men they had met in other countries. Tosh says the paintings on four foot high wooden panels have been a labour of love during the past five years.

The Acting Director of the Diefenbaker Centre Teresa Carlson says the exhibit compliments a book entitled, "Sentimental Journey published by the Saskatchewan War Brides Association. Carlson adds some of the women include those who met "fly boys" from other countries who were training in Saskatchewan during the war.The exhibit opens Saturday and runs until May 31st.
