Update: I have now confirmed 79 of the 88 Canadian's (and running out of resources to check)

I will check further, but I think I'm almost done. I'll send you the spreadsheet with all the info I have added (it's on this website, but you should be able to go thru it faster with the spreadsheet)

Cheers

Your record H/17354 Lavalle

http://royalwinnipegrifles.com/wp-co...pring_2011.pdf


Article indicates he was Cpl Lavallee (note spelling)

Still trying to confirm a initials or first name

Really having issues confirming this man. I've found a Last Post for a Daniel Lavallee of the RWR, but a different Svc Number.

Then I've found a Daniel Lavallee, but he served with the Fusiliers Mont-Royal??? It's actually on his headstone, unless that was the last Regiment (or the first) he served with.

And the Svc Number you gave us H17354 should be a "PPCLI" (Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry) number.......

So, still working on this one

I don't think this is the guy. The A&D is pretty clear on the J. and the leading 7 of the service number.

[quote=Temujin;13819]I've been researching

[color="Red"]your record F/Sgt Minet, J Svc Number R/194196

[/quote}

Williams seems to have been uninjured and held in the Stalag on the south side of Rennes but not in the hospital.

Here is what I have on Minet. Maybe you can read the service number or name differently He arrived 16 June and out 18 June so his injuries were minor.

This is him. It's Nind which matches the record I found. The writer of this record makes his "N's" the same. Look at the first N and the 3rd letter. Their BOTH "N's". The last letter is a "d".

You should try WW1 records, the "flurishes" that some of the writers put in the records is REALLY HARD to decipher. Should have used these guys to write code LOL

Anyway, let me know what other records I need to research some more or maybe look at the original, to see if I can decipher it??

The one's I can't seem to pin down are:

Bell, T. C. (although I have confirmed his name and Svc Number)
Carfan, L -
Evans, K
Fortier, H.
Labrick, M. P.
Lavallee, D. J.
McIntosh, M, H.
Wilson, R. H.


In fact, maybe if I could see the original for each of the above records, it might help (a second pair of eyes looking at the writing maybe???)
