BICA boys group departing from Liverpool, June 1930
My father, William Bert Weare, was a BICA boy, arriving in Quebec July 4th 1930, in a party of 15. Unfortunately, he didn't do well in Canada and returned to England in 1932, where he died in 1986. We have a photo of the group, taken beside the Duchess of York. An annotation says it was taken in Liverpool. My father is lower left of the group on the stairs, grasping the rail.
This might well be the only copy of this photo, so it may be useful to other BICA boys' relatives. The group code in the LAC database is Q30EM.
