Grandpa’s Best Friend

I have old box of pictures from my Grandma’s house. Some of the pictures, she gave me a little bit of info with. In this set is my Grandfather Oscar Rowan Lindsay, his mother Edith Basham Lindsay and his best friend Bob Scroder.

This is what my Grandma wrote “Oscar’s best friend’s name was Bob Schroder and he was killed in World War II serving the Canadian Army..”
