During World War I, Ernest Hemingway was an officer in the Italian Ambulance Corps. Twenty years later, Robert “Reno” Pearl was a sergeant in the Canadian St. John’s Ambulance Brigade. Why Robert was called “Reno” was a mystery, but throughout his life, he had several nicknames. Like so many nicknames, most seemed to be given out of love, hate or jealousy, so “Reno” was fine with Robert. And like Hemingway, he served the wounded well.
