On June 26, 2018, May Eleanor McTaggart deposited the records at the Swift Current Museum. The transfer of the records to the Museum was completed on March 4, 2020.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of black-and-white and colour photocopies of letters and telegrams to William John McTaggart's father about McTaggart being missing in action and taken prisoner of war, as well as copies of a telegram and letters to McTaggart, including one from the Caterpillar Club. Also includes handwritten information about McTaggart by his sister-in-law, a photocopy of an article about McTaggart's grandparents, and a photocopy of McTaggart's log book to be qualified as an air gunner. Also includes six photographs of 13 other photographs of McTaggart, some certificates, medals, and some photos from the Second World War.
Immediate source of acquisition
May Eleanor McTaggart of Peachland, British Columbia, donated the records to the Swift Current Museum in April 2016. She was William John McTaggart's sister-in-law. It is not known why she had the records, though they may have been in Lawrence Hugh McTaggart's possession after his brother's death.
