I am researching a journey taken by my Grandfather, Clifford John Winston, sometimes spelled Winstone, to Canada on a Government Harvest Scheme to Winnipeg aboard the SS Megantic from Southampton to Quebec in September 1928. He went with 2 friends from Swansea, Griffith Lewis, a labourer and Martin Hughes a fireman. Im looking for anything related to what they did in Canada, or the journey there and back. Were they 'repatriated' at government expense due to communist uprisings? Is there a record of work done by Excursionists? A record of where they went? Did they actually find work,as the harvest was poor that year? Did Hughes or Lewis actually stay in Canada?
What was life like for them when they got there?
Thank you in advance!
