“The first Canadian draftees to be sent abroad sailed for Europe from Halifax. Except for service in Kiska, conscripts had not been sent abroad. Of the 60,000 men in this category, many seemed intent on not going into combat areas. Prior to this first overseas departure, 7,800 had gone absent without leave and 6,300 were still absent at sailing time. As some boarded the ships, they dropped their rifles into the water from the gangplank.” – Robert Goralski, “January 3, 1945,” World War II Almanac: 1931-1945
