I've found the following on the field ambulance units,
No. 14 Field Ambulance, RCAMC
Assigned to 7th Canadian Infantry Brigade (D-Day)
Based in Moncton New Brunswick
No. 22 Field Ambulance, RCAMC
Assigned to 8th Canadian Infantry Brigade (D-Day)
Based in Halifax Nova Scotia
No. 23 Field Ambulance, RCAMC
Assigned to 9th Canadian Infantry Brigade (D-Day)
Based in Camp Petawawa Ontario
Since he enlisted in Toronto I would think he'd have been part of No. 23 out of Petawawa.
The "Official History of The Canadian Medical Services 1939 - 1945," has No. 23 supporting the 9th Brigade. On D-Day plus one the 9th Brigade "received the weight of the 12th S.S. Panzer Division," which, with some conjecture, could account for family history that my Grandfather, though injured by shrapnel, was the sole survivor of an ambulance which was hit.
