Hi Cathy, welcome:

The first thing I advise is to order his military records. These are avialble at LAC. Here's a link that tells you how to order these records

Is this him Cathy?

Sapper Harold GOULDING
Date Deceased: March 16th, 2014
Age: 82
Service Information

Sapper, Canadian Army Korean War (SN1466)
Legion Branch Information

Gander Branch, Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

https://legionmagazine.com/en/last-p...ntry&id=320935

If it is, then you can then use his rank and Regimental Number on the application. Also, LAC will accept the Last Post in the Royal Canadian Legion website as proof of his passing.

You may not be able to get his full records, as he has to have been passed away more than 20 years, so in 2034, you can order his complete records. LAC will give you abbreviate records for now
