- Canada declared war on Sept. 10, 1939, but five days earlier, Lieutenant Philip Frowde Seagram had already signed on to the Canadian Field Force. After a series of courses in regimental duties and field engineering, Philip embarked for England from Halifax on Dec. 18. Through much of 1940, he was assigned to headquarters of the 1st Canadian Division based in London. Promoted to Captain and named an aide-de-camp to the general officer commanding, i.e. Lieutenant-General Andrew McNaughton, Philip was busy taking numerous courses. The German bombing blitz lasted from fall 1940 until May so, on Saturday, March 8, 1941, London was still a dangerous city in which to be out-and-about. A party of eight Canadian servicemen and nursing sisters felt the famous Café de Paris near Leicester Square might be a safer place than most since it was 20 feet underground below a two-storey, very solid building. Nevertheless, two German bombs did reach the club. One was a dud, but the other exploded just above the dance floor, close to Britain's popular bandleader, Ken "Snakehips" Johnson. Sitting at a table with his friends, Philip Seagram was also killed.
