      Certificate of naturalization as British subject: Number 120954. Series A. 16 October 1934.

      The following was recorded by Ralph Pedersen in January 1982 in
      conversation with his father.
      "From age 7-14 attended school in Denmark. 11-12 years old worked for
      a tinsmith, 12 years old worked in a bakery. In both of these jobs the
      money he brought home was handed over to his father. Age 13-15 worked in a
      sawmill cutting fir and oak for a furniture making business. He went to
      school in the morning and worked in the mill in the afternoons until 6pm.
      From January 1917 to January 1921, age 15 to 19, he was an apprentice in a
      machine shop. The first year was spent wielding a 10 pound hammer for 10
      hours a day, 6 days a week. He got 75› per week for 60 hours work. The
      blacksmith would pull the hot iron out of the forge and Richard would hit
      it. "I came home so tired I couldn't do anything else but I would still
      have to go out and weed in the garden. I had no thought of quitting
      because I didn't like the work. We just went through with it." The second
      year he was sent out to paint machinery. The third year was spent working
      and learning on the lathe. The fourth year he assembled machinery
      including erecting large windmills mostly for farmers. His pay was $4 per
      week. In 1921 he got work in Silkeborg in a machine shop and worked there
      until he came to Camrose. The work was fixing gas meters and lathe work."
      "In 1928 I came to Camrose on June 1st. I had $50. From June 1st to
      September 30th I worked on a farm. The first farmer paid me $1 a day plus
      food and a bed in a granary. I worked there 2 months. Then in harvest I
      worked for a farmer getting paid $4 a day shocking (14 days) and $5 a day
      threshing (19 days). In October 1928 I got work as a mechanic at the Ford
      garage (McAfee Motors). I was paid $20 per week. I was there from 1928 to
      1931. The last 2 years I was the shop foreman and made $30 per week. The
      hours were 8am to 6pm but I often worked longer with no extra pay. I had
      made up my mind that if I could save up enough money to send for Anna in
      that first year, then I would stay. I not only saved enough to send for
      her but I bought a piece of land for $40, paid $125 for a small house, dug
      a hole for a cellar and put a foundation 12 ft. x 20 ft. under the house.
      From 1931 to 1934 I leased a machine shop. The contract was that 25 cents out
      of ever dollar went to Dahl from whom I had leased the machine shop. I had
      one man working for me. I did the work on the Ford cars, the other man did
      the machine shop work. I had the reputation that if a part of any machine
      was broken I could fix it or make a new one. Those were tough years. I
      worked long hours, often far into the night in order to make it go. When
      Dahl's son-in-law came back and took over I went into partnership with
      Grenway. From 1934 to 1938 I was in a partnership - 'Grenway & Pedersen
      Chrysler Dealer' with a garage and machine shop. Grenway went to war and I
      didn't have enough money to buy him out so I rented a building and started
      my own business in 1938 - a garage and machine shop. In 1939 I built a new
      garage. In 1940 I got the Nash dealership but only got one car. In 1949
      or 50 I got one Nash; in 1951 I started getting more cars. In 1952 I built
      a new garage. Those were some tight times economically as people didn't pay their
      accounts." (In 1955 Dad showed me where the accounts were carrying $11,000 - $12,000.)
      "In 1954 I built a new machine shop half a block away from the garage. In 1955 I got the
      Volkswagen franchise. In 1966 I sold the garage and in 1975 sold the machine shop."
      "We moved to our present house in 1937. In Denmark I moved 14 times in 14 years and
      when I was a little older I said to myself, 'when I get married I will own my own home, not
      rent, and stay there.' When we moved so often we got behind in school. I bought the house
      at 5211 - 48 A Avenue for $1000. I had $400 and borrowed $600 from the Royal Bank of
      Canada. I had 12 month to pay it back. Before 6 month I had paid it all. I've been
      satisfied in Camrose. I haven't regretted it for one day. It helps to have had a good wife."
      "My mother said when I was 7 - 8 years old, 'I like the babies till they get up to 2 years
      and then I don't care much for them'." (Dad overheard this when his mother was talking to
      some other woman.) "My mother was a kind woman." (Anna - "Dad's dad was a
      somewhat harsh man, too strict.") (Richard) "My father never had any patience. When I
      was 8 I had a small instrument. He was going to teach me. He was trying to tell me
      something and I was looking out the window at the boys playing. He said, 'You are not
      interested in that so you might as well to out and play'. That was the end of the instrument."
      "If a pastor came into our home we showed great respect. When I would go home after
      being gone, say a month, there was not even a hand shake. I can't say we took around
      (hugged) our parents at anytime and visa versa. It was a lot harder to explain how you feel.
      We kept it in our selves."

      The following story was told by Dad during a visit to Camrose (by Harold) in about
      1986. Dad, at that time had some difficulty speaking. In talking with Dad, he said he reads
      but forgets what was read. He found talking to people difficult, as he can 'see' what he
      wants to say, but cannot find the word. He can't write in English (any longer) as he finds
      English difficult, but has not the Danish vocabulary. Given time and patience, he could
      make his story understood, however.
      Dad took his apprenticeship with a machinist in Bjerringbro. After a couple of years,
      about half way through his apprenticeship he was laid off due to no work in the area. His
      father on learning this responded with, "well, you can always go work on the farm". Dad
      would have nothing to do with that and bicycled 12 miles to Silkeborg where he applied for a
      job as machinist with a machine company there. He was hired, and found out subsequently
      from one of his two co-workers that because he had been wearing a lapel pin of a Christian
      organization, the owner had hired him. The owner was also a Christian. Dad was made the
      head machinist in the firm. As well, the owner had a brother who had a machinery business,
      and when there was too little business at one firm, Dad would be sent to the other to do work
      there. Dad found the owner a fine man to work for and worked there until he went to

      The day couch in Dad's study was in their first house in 1929 serving as couch by day
      and bed by night. The dining room furniture was bought shortly after marriage.

      Trips home to Denmark -
      Mother only: 1934 (with Eric and Ruth),
      Dad only: 1951, 1962, 1968,

      Both: 1946 (with Harold), 1965, 1971 (with Ruth), 1974, 1978, 1983.

      The following is an account by Paul of the day that father died:

      When I came home to Camrose, Dad was unconscious. Since he had been unable to speak
      for a couple of years, it was difficult to know if he understood what we said to him. For the
      past while he had refused to eat and it was clear that he would die soon. Ruth and Ralph
      were already there. The three of us were going together to the hospital to sit with dad.
      Mother did not come that day but she asked me to read to dad from the Bible and pray with
      him. After we had been sitting around dad's bed for a while, I told the others of mom's
      request, took Dad's Bible and read the opening verses of the twenty-first chapter of
      Revelation "...he will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and
      crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away..." After the reading
      we all prayed the Lord's Prayer together. Then my sister started to sing the hymn "Children
      of the Heavenly Father Safely in his bosom gather". While we were singing, father stopped
      breathing. Tears streaming down, we sang all four verses, finishing "Though he giveth or he
      taketh, God his children ne'er forsaketh; His the loving purpose solely To preserve them pure
      and holy." Father's death brought to remembrance the words of Horatio's farewell to the
      dying Hamlet, "and flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest." And so they did as we, his
      children, wept.

      The EMPRESS OF BRITAIN was built for the Canadian Pacific Line by Fairfield Shipbuilding, Glasgow in 1906. She was a 14,189 gross ton vessel, length 548.8ft x beam 65.7ft, two funnels, two masts, twin screw and a speed of 18 knots. There was accommodation for 310-1st, 470-2nd and 750-3rd class passengers. Launched on 11/11/1905 she sailed from Liverpool on her maiden voyage to Quebec on 5/5/1906. Both the EMPRESS OF BRITAIN and her sister ship, the ill-fated EMPRESS OF IRELAND were the fastest ships on the Canada service at the time. On 22/7/1912, she rammed and sank the SS HELVETIA in fog off Cape Magdeleine in the lower St Lawrence River. In 1914 she was converted to an Armed Merchant Cruiser and joined Admiral Stoddart's squadron in the SouthAtlantic. She later patrolled between Cape Finisterre and the Cape Verde Islands. In May 1915 she was recommisioned as a troop transport and carried more than 110,000 troops to the Dardanelles, Egypt and India as well as Canadian and US expeditionary forces across the NorthAtlantic. On 12/12/1915 while passing through the Straits of Gibraltar, she collided with and sank a Greek steamer. In March 1919 she resumed the Liverpool - St.John NB service for one round voyage and was then converted from coal to oil fuel and her passenger accommodation was modernised. On 1/9/1920 she returned to the Liverpool - Quebec service and in Oct.1922 commenced running between Southampton - Cherbourg - Quebec. In 1924 she was renamed MONTROYAL and her accommodation altered to carry 600-cabin and 800-3rd class passengers, returning to the Liverpool - Quebec service on 19/4/1924. In 1926 her accommodation was again altered to carry cabin, tourist and 3rd class and she made eight trips a year through 1926 and the following year was transferred to the Antwerp - Southampton - Cherbourg - Quebec route. She commenced her final voyage from Antwerp on 7/9/1929 and was then laid up after making a total of 190 round voyages on the North Atlantic. On 17/6/1930 she was sold to the Stavanger Shipbreaking Co. and was scrapped. The owner of the Sola Strand Hotel bought the lounge from the shipbreakers and incorporated it into his hotel as the Montroyal Ballroom. The beautiful woodwork is still a feature of this building which now houses the Norwegian School for Hotel Management.
