Chief Boulden to Lead Firemen Overseas

Chief Donald A. Boulden has received a leave of absence from the Winnipeg, Man., Fire Department to take up an appointment as Commander of the detachment of Canadian firefighters which will leave for Britain shortly.

Chief Boulden served overseas in the First World War in the armed services, and some years later was appointed from a post as hoseman to head Winnipeg’s fire department.

The Canadian Fire Fighters’ Corps will go to Britain as a civilian detachment to aid British fire fighting units and to acquaint each representative of a Dominion fire department with the methods used in battling incendiary bombs. The Corps will be established under the department of National War Services.
