HI,

Could you possibly post images of the document so that we can see the information in context?

Also SOS stands for Struck off Strength - i.e. his name was removed from the list of personnel for that unit. TOS is Taken on Strength.

Further details can be found here: http://ww2talk.com/index.php?threads...records.15663/

It would appear to me, from what you have written, is that he was wounded and moved between the Casualty stations or was posted to them. (I haven't looked at your original post to see the units to which he was attached or served with).

Mark

16 FDS RCAMC - 16 Field Dressing Station, Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps
2 cdn ccs - 2nd Canadian Casualty Clearing Station
66 Gen spt Coy - 66 General Support Company

As Mark said, sos and tos mean:
sos - means “struck off strength” (he left that unit)
Tos - means “taken on strenght” (he joined that unit)

The first two are Medical Units, and the last one is a Royal Canadian Army Service Corps transportation company

I don’t think he was wounded (we would need to see his medical records)......I think he served with these units, either as a driver or medic or both. Again, seeing his records would help determine this

Just checked his Regimental number. G50160 indicates that when he joined the Army he joined up as part of the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps and joined in New Brunswick
