Introduction and request
My name is Heather and I am trying to find information about my uncle,
Lawrence Earl Sim - Rifleman. Died on June 6, 1944, at age 21 yrs. Was with the Royal Winnipeg Rifles. L/104634.
I know nothing about the military, and actually what I have obtained here, except my uncle's first and last name, is from the Veteran's web.
Parents were Hugh and Lottie Sim. I am thinking Lawrence was born in Regina because from the time I was born, my grandparents called Regina home. Lawrence died 10 years before I was born.
My grandmother kept a framed photo of Lawrence in his uniform hidden in a trunk and I only got a passing look at it when I was 6 or 7 years old. Is there a way that I could get a copy of that photo?
I know I need to research WW2 more, but would my uncle have been conscripted, or would he have just signed up?
Many thanks for any and all help. Heather
