Hi All. I'm not looking for money. - How's that for a grab? I just wanted to share this interesting true story to see if doc filmmakers think this is worth delving further into. I think so. A few months ago, I met Trevor Plint. Trevor is working on his Ph.D in Chemical Engineering at the University of Toronto. He is also a Junior Fellow at Massey College, University of Toronto. In 2008, on a whim, Trevor bought a tiny journal measuring all of 5 1/2" high and 3 1/2" wide off a table at the Gloucester Green Bus Station in Oxford, England for the bargain price of £2. He thought the tiny graph paper on the inside was neat. He discovered, however, that it wasn’t completely blank once he boarded the bus. You see, once Trevor sat down and flipped through the journal, he discovered the attached page and a bunch more that followed. Not being able to read Italian, Trevor asked former professors for leads in helping with the translation. Professors in the languages dept. turned him down - they said they couldn’t read the handwriting. (It’s very small and not like North American cursive.) Through connections, his request for assist came to me. I took one look at it and instantly knew the shape of the letters. My grandfather, who was born in 1889 and with whom I lived for 18 years, wrote exactly the same way. I volunteered to translate it and Trevor graciously entrusted it to me. Turns out, the journal is a diary of a soldier (a telegrafista) who fought in WWI. It’s also much more than that – it also contains all the transmissions he sent over the wire while a soldier. By comparing the dates in the diary to the entries of the transmissions, I was able to determine the name of the soldier, where he was during the war and other notable war figures of the time. It’s a curious story. How did this diary end up at a bus station in Oxford? Are there any family members out there now? It's also a piece of history. Trevor and I would ultimately like the diary to go to a museum for safekeeping and for more people to see. There is no selfishness here. Anyone want to take this further for a doc?
