DONOR'S FATHER PICKED GLASSES UP IN A TRENCH AT PASSCHENDAELE DURING THE GREAT BATTLE OF OCT 26 - NOV. 7 1917. HE WAS SERVING WITH THE ROYAL CANADIAN ENGINEERS AS A PRIVATE UNDER LT-GEN. DIR ARTHUR CURRIE. THE BINOCULARS ARE REFERENCED SUPERFICIALLY IN A lETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLE ON 28 JUNE 1986. TO SEE THE ARTICLE, PLEASE REFERENCE THE PERMANENT FILE. *UPDATE* IN 2012 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT DAVID SMITH CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MILITARY OBJECTS. HE WAS ABLE TO IDENTIFY THE ORIGINAL OWNER AS HENRY OSCAR ASPESLET. ACCORDING TO A FAMILY HISTORY BLOG KEPT BY (DAUGHTER TO ORIGINAL OWNER) RUBY MARLES, “MY GRANDPARENTS, AMMON OSCAR ASPESLET , (BORN [JUNE 20, 1863) AND KARI SOGSTAD, (BORN OCTOBER 7, 1864) WERE MARRIED IN NORWAY AND IMMIGRATED TO THE UNITED STATES, SETTLING IN THE LA CROSSE, WISCONSIN AREA. SEVERAL OF THEIR FIFTEEN CHILDREN WERE BORN THERE. AROUND THE TURN OF THE CENTURY THEY DECIDED TO MOVE TO CANADA AND TAKE UP A HOMESTEAD IN SASKATCHEWAN. THEY SETTLED IN THE BIRCH HILLS AREA, WHERE THEY REMAINED. MY FATHER, HENRY OSCAR ASPESLET (ORIGINAL OWNER OF THE BINOCULARS) [BORN NOVEMBER 14, 1886], WORKED AT A MULTITUDE OF JOBS WHILE HE WAS GROWING UP. AT ONE TIME HE WORKED WITH HIS FATHER RUNNING A SUPPLY LINE UP INTO THE LAC LA RONDE AREA. BECAUSE IT WAS MOSTLY MUSKEG COUNTRY, THEY RAN SUPPLIES FROM FREEZE-UP TO SPRING THAW. WHEN WE WERE CHILDREN MY FATHER WOULD REGALE US WITH TALES OF SPENDING THE NIGHT AT AN INDIAN ENCAMPMENT AND TELL US TALES OF HOW THEY ATE MUSKRAT STEW, TAILS AND ALL. THERE WERE LOTS OF OTHER STORIES AND SOMETIMES AS I GREW OLDER, I WOULD WONDER IF THEY WERE FACT OR FICTION. YEARS LATER WHEN I GOT TO KNOW MY UNCLE NAVIN, FATHER’S YOUNGEST BROTHER, I ASKED HIM ABOUT SOME OF THE TALES FATHER TOLD US AND HE ASSURED ME THEY WERE FACT. AT THE OUTBREAK OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR, FATHER, WHO WAS LIVING IN EDMONTON AT THE TIME, JOINED THE LOYAL EDMONTON REGIMENT. HE WAS QUICKLY SENT OVERSEAS, AND THEN TO FRANCE. IT WAS WHILE HE WAS ON SICK LEAVE IN ENGLAND IN 1916, THAT HE MET MY MOTHER ETHEL JANE NEWNHAM, [BORN MAY 29,1886]. FATHER AND HIS BUDDY WERE ON A TRAIN PLATFORM WAITING FOR A TRAIN TO ALDERSHOT, WHEN MY MOTHER, WITH A GROUP OF OTHER YOUNG LADIES, COMPLETE WITH CHAPERONE, ENTERED THE SAME TRAIN. FATHER HAD NOTICED MOTHER RIGHT AWAY AND WANTED TO MEET HER. MUCH TO HIS SURPRISE THEY WERE ALL GOING TO THE SAME PLACE, A DANCE PUT ON BY THE LADIES ‘GROUP OF THE COMMUNITY, TO HELP ENTERTAIN THE TROOPS. FATHER GOT HIS INTRODUCTION TO MOTHER ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AND TRIED TO MONOPOLIZE HER FOR THE REST OF THE EVENING; THE CHAPERONES WEREN’T HAVING ANY OF THAT. MOTHER TOLD US THAT HE WAS SUCH A WONDERFUL DANCER THAT SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN QUITE HAPPY TO DANCE WITH HIM, BUT HAD TO DO HER PART BY DANCING WITH THE OTHER SOLDIERS. FATHER WAS NOT TO BE PUT OFF, AND CONTINUED TO SEEK HER OUT. HER FAMILY THOUGHT HE WAS RATHER A ROUGH CANADIAN, BUT GRANDMOTHER NEWNHAM THOUGHT HE HAD LOVELY MANNERS, AND BEAUTIFUL GRAY EYES. HIS PERSISTENCE PAID OFF FOR THEY WERE MARRIED ON MARCH 14,1917. ON JULY 1,1918 MY BROTHER ANTON OSCAR WAS BORN IN ENGLAND. AS A WAR BRIDE WITH A SMALL CHILD, MY MOTHER PACKED ALL HER BELONGINGS AND MOVED WITH HER HUSBAND TO CANADA. HER FAMILY WERE DEVASTATED; THEY COULDN’T UNDERSTAND WHY HENRY WOULDN’T STAY IN ENGLAND WITH THEIR PRECIOUS ONLY DAUGHTER, WHOM THEY CONSIDERED MUCH TOO DELICATE FOR THE WILD FRONTIER. MY MOTHER MAY HAVE ONLY BEEN 4’10 INCHES HIGH AND 85 LBS, BUT SHE HAD AN INNER STRENGTH THAT FAR OUTWEIGHED HER SIZE. IN THE NEXT 17 YEARS SHE HAD 10 CHILDREN. EXCEPT FOR MY BROTHER ALFRED , [BORN SEPT. 21, 1922, DIED APRIL 20, 1923 ] WHO WAS BORN WITH A HEART DEFECT, THE REST OF US ARE STILL HEALTHY AND ACTIVE. MY PARENTS ARRIVED IN EDMONTON IN THE SPRING OF 1919. MOTHER SAID THE PRAIRIES WERE COVERED WITH BLUE LUPINS AND SHE WONDERED WHY THEY DIDN’T HAVE THAT AS THE PROVINCIAL FLOWER RATHER THAN THE WILD ROSE. THEY STAYED IN EDMONTON ONLY LONG ENOUGH FOR FATHER TO BE PROCESSED OUT OF THE ARMY AND THEN MOVED TO FORT SASKATCHEWAN, WHERE FATHER WORKED AT SEVERAL JOBS WHILE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING PERMANENT. AFTER A YEAR THERE, THE OPPORTUNITY TO SET UP A BARBERSHOP IN THE VILLAGE OF BRUDERHEIM CAME UP. THEY MOVED ONCE AGAIN AND IT WAS HERE THEY REMAINED. FATHER’S FEET HAD BEEN DAMAGED DURING HIS SOJOURN IN THE TRENCHES DURING THE WAR, AND WHEN HE COULD NO LONGER BEAR THE LONG HOURS ON HIS FEET IN THE BARBERSHOP, HE CLOSED THE SHOP AND BEGAN A DELIVERY BUSINESS. MY FATHER DIED ON JANUARY 29, 1942. MY MOTHER CONTINUED TO LIVE IN THE FAMILY HOME TILL 1952, WHEN SHE MOVED INTO EDMONTON WHERE SHE LIVED UNTIL SHE DIED IN SEPTEMBER, 1962.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, INCLUDING A PICTURE OF HENRY OSCAR ASPESLET FROM HIS DAUGHTER'S BLOG, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE.
