Thx for your help.
Here are his records. Give’s his mother name and address. Of course all his parent would be passed away.....so finding relatives could be hard.
Records indicate he was with the PPCLI when killed in action.
I might suggest, contacting the PPCLI Regimental Museum, see if they could help.......second, contact the Royal Canadian Legion to see if they would help...
If you cannot determine a relative, I might suggest donating the item to the PPCLI Regimental Museum may be a “good home” for it.
I’ll see if I can find anything else
