B11 - Several Musicians among Hospital Stationary Unit, No. 9,  before departing Antigonish Train Station, 1916

Several members of the No. 9 Hospital Stationary Unit were talented musicians. Although it was quite unusual for such a small Unit to have its own band, the arrangement was made possible through a donation of instruments by J.A. MacDonald, Antigonish. The Unit band provided recreation and entertainment for patients and staff while in England.
