My brother in the Canadian Army during WWII

Hello all,

 

I got a response back from the Canadian Archives stating, that due to a backlog of requests, I can expect a response in about eight months. I'll keep you posted. Jack

Jack, I am sorry to hear that the service standards have slipped so far. Through the grapevine I have heard that the archives have undergone significant cutbacks in recent years, and just do not have sufficient staff to handle all of the incoming requests. It used to be that an inquiry like this would be answered and completed within a few weeks.

Thank you for asking. Documents show that he was wounded not once, but twice--Sicily and Italy. In addition to being trained on the mororcycle, he was also trained as a tank diver. He was promoted to Lance Corporal. All this is new information to me as details on his discharge paper is very sparce.

Thank you so much for sharing this unique story and thanks for memorializing his service.


Always looking for USN WW2 era Bullion Chief Petty Officer Rates, any Chief Petty Officer Airship Rigger Rates, Liberty Cuffs, WW2 USMC Insignia and Distinguishing Marks, and WW2 Civil Defense and Civil Air Patrol Insignia
