1. At the request of the Kalem Company, manufacturers of moving picture films, authority was granted by the O. C. Eastern Ontario Command, who saw no objection to the men taking part in these pictures.
2. All the men taking part did so voluntarily, and were paid 75 cents each time they turned out, which was on half holidays and during their spare time.
The money was paid to the men direct by the Kalem Company each afternoon they turned out. Some $65 to $75 was paid to the men but the exact amounts are not known.
