That's what one of the books said but I wasn't sure if it was still observed. Poor courageous, sacrificed Newfoundlanders. Newfoundland wasn't a Canadian territory then and thus not a British territory either, so why did they get stuck going?
Battle of Somme. UGH. What a joke that turned out to be. And they had like, 11 or 12 battles of Ypres.
That was the one I originally wanted, Olympia, but they didn't have it in stock so I just bought the Fluval. Kinda regretting it, the Marineland looks easier to do maintenance on.
EDIT: Gaebora doesn't have a whole lot of room to run in a 3gal. You'll get him. :)
You're right, NL wasn't part of Canada (not until 1949) but it was a British Colony. It was self governed for a bit but mostly it was British ruled. And the men and boys who went out to Europe were just loyal to the British Empire. Of course, it was expected of them by the Empire and by peers. Men who were able-bodied who DIDN'T want to join were publicly and shamelessly humiliated. The First World War was the "war to end all wars". Everybody was so enthusiastic and eager to go win and participate so they could be brave and have status. The ideas of gender roles were heightened back then too, men who did not sign up or were turned away helped in ways they could at home.
The fishery was also important so some men stayed behind in the outports and were okay socially. More women and children took on more roles but yea..
IT'S ALL SAKURA'S FAULT!! SHE ASKED ME A QUESTION!!
