Paul Dwyer was born on Bell Island and currently makes his
home in Gander.
After a 30 year career in education, Paul became fascinated
with the Royal Newfoundland Regiment in World War One.
He spent four years researching more than 200 men from Bell
Island who voluntarily enlisted to serve in the Great War.
The result is a book he says is for the people of
Newfoundland and Labrador and specifically for the people of Bell Island
wherever they may be in the world, as well as for the many communities that
went to make up the Bell Island men, the boys and men who made the almost
impossible transition from miners and fishers to soldiers and sailors.
