In November 1942, almost a year before joining HMCS St. Croix, Lieutenant Alex Ross took leave from his naval duties to marry Mona Jean Robinson.
The couple, who had likely met during their time at McGill University, then honeymooned at Mont Tremblant, in Quebec's Laurentian Mountains. These photographs show vignettes from their brief time there: Alex, in his uniform, rides a chairlift, while Mona enjoys the view from the mountaintop (top row, centre). The camera has also captured their first breakfast together as a married couple (bottom row).
