THOMPSON, Judith. Married to Red Serge : One Woman's Life with a Nova Scotia Mountie. (Tantallon, N.S.) : Glen Margaret Publishing, (November 2007). First Printing. Pp -175,(1). Illustrated. Square 8vo, illustrated red card covers. "When Judith Thompson got her man, she got more than she bargained for - she not only married her Mountie, she also wedded the RCMP. Life asa 'Red Serge Wife' was like having a second family. It brought lasting fri endships and support, but the Force was also a demanding taskmaster. In Keith and Judith Thompson's early days together, Mounties were expected to work all hours of the day and night, with no time off to spend with family. What's more, they were transferred from detachment to detachment at the whim of the Force. Judith poignantly writes of the stresses this existence imposed on her family, as they moved between postings in Bridgetown, Halifax, Sherbrooke, Windsor, Sydney and Digby, Nova Scotia. They worked hard and played hard, and this book chronicles the highs, the lows, the humour and the drama of their life together, until their happiness was tragically cut shortby the loss of Judith's beloved Mountie to cancer." - from the back cover.
