Le Havre was a important base for British warships and entry point for British soldiers to the Western Front. A tipped-in newspaper clipping indicates that Lieut.

Amos is believed to have been Canadian from Montreal (by provenance), probably fluent in French (liaison officer) and had named the "305" cat mascot, "Canada".
