    Thank you all so much for the great comments and advice. I am going to get them framed. I got a price and it is not cheap, but it will be done. I know my grandfather and Don (the guy who drew these) worked on a small paper called THE BULLET. I don't know if it was a small paper meant to entertain the troops or what but I found one small piece of the paper and it said Don was the artist and my grandpa was the editor. the paper isn't cheap though it is very high quality and strong. That is why they have lasted this long. I'll post more pics when the are framed.

    My grandpa served with the 5th field Regt. R.C.A. He was on the first boat leaving Halifax N.S. to go early and set up. After about to years he was injured and instead of coming home he was placed with the Knights of Columbus as a master projectionist in charge of troop entertainment wherever he was. In Italy I know he was right behind the Canadian 8th army Division With a reinforcement troops. He was very well like by all.

    Well, if you want to keep theses draws safe, better do a copy to be framed.
    And keep safe originals without lights on them, beetween 2 "stained paper".
    Paper is very photosensible and if it turns white to yellow , it' s not very good. Especially with old papers.
    The ink looks like china ink who 's very light resistant. But for unique pieces caution is very important.

    I finally found the piece of paper that connected my grandfather and the man who drew those pictures. It was a paper called The Bullet. I'm not sure if was a small paper circulated around the Canadian camp or what but it has a good piece on my grandpa as well as other articles. My grandpa's is the long one in the middle of the second pic. Hope you enjoy.Click image for larger version.
