Letter from C. Batch (RCMP), to Mrs. M. Bacci, May 8, 1942
This typewritten letter from C. Batch (RCMP Inspector, Assistant Intelligence Officer), was sent to Mrs. M. Bacci, on May 8, 1942.
In this letter, Batch references a letter sent by Mrs. Bacci to the Deputy Minister of Justice, which was forwarded to the RCMP. The inspector then references a letter in reply which he had already sent Mrs. Bacci the day before (see LICEA2012-0002-0078).
Bacci was interned for almost three years. According to family, Bacci's wife Erminia (Minnie) suffered a serious nervous breakdown and was hospitalized at length. His oldest son Aldo was forced to quit high school to help support the family. When his father was released and returned home, Aldo received notice that he was conscripted into the Canadian Army; however, he did not serve overseas.
