During WW2, my grandmother grew up and lived on a farm in Arnhem, NL. In 1945 (prior to Germany's surrender), some Canadian paratroopers camped in front of their house for a couple of days before moving out, one of them, "Chuck Bernhart" traded them this silver tag (Canadian "dog-tag"?) in exchange for some milk and eggs. She has kept this since then. In the 1980s, she tried to find him or some living relatives in an attempt to return it but had no luck. Since we're now in the age of the internet, I decided to look into it. Looking up his service number in the Library and Archives of Canada (Service Files of the Second World War - War Dead, 1939-1947), but yielded no results which leads me to believe that he made it through the war.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it!
