Captain Thomas Leo MacDonald Uniform Donation

Last week, Anne MacDonald, the great granddaughter of Captain Thomas Leo MacDonald donated the Captain’s uniforms and a miscellany of memorabilia to the branch.  The Lancaster Legion was selected as the recipient of these artifacts because the land that the branch now sits on was owned by the MacDonald family. Anne says that her great Granddad would be proud to know that his iniforms are back home in Lancaster.

Here’s a look at the Captain and his uniforms.
