Thanks to Keith Black for this puzzle. The Toronto Star of 11 February 1959 reports on the death of Maude Leslie, noted as “the mother of the navy”, who showed up either at HMCS STAR or the railway station (presumably the Canadian National, now LIUNA), whenever men were being shipped out. It also noted that she had died in a nursing home where she had been placed by HMCS STAR Ladies Auxiliary. Does anyone have any information to add?
