Default William King Evans 1899 1968 WW1

Canadian Army. Bill born in St John's NFLD. I have a card saying he was in the AMC I think stands for Army Medical Corps. Grandmother told me he left St John NFLD. He did enlist in Nova Scotia with a highland regiment that did not wear kilts. May have been with the the 85th? Nova Scotia Highlanders also The 85th Overseas Battalion. I have his service pin for" Service The Front" and the numbered card that goes with that pin with his name . I can not find him in the attestation papers. Or the 85th records. Any ideas on where to look next? Thank you, Ron Cairns Kitchener ON

I'm sorry, I'm not finding anything......AMC is "Army Medical Corps"......if you could post the info you have (photo's if possible) so that we can look at them and see if it will tell us anything else.

I have found a Imperial War Gratiuity record that states a "William Evans" applied for a Imperial Gratiuity in 1922 in Calgary. The records states he "left Canada" and joined the 2nd Welsh Regiment. It does not give any further details (no date of birth, no place of residence etc) for me to confirm if this is the correct man. JUst thought I would let you know. If you'd like to see the record, let me know and I can post it up for you.
