He is a wonderful man and would love to know more details through the war years. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance...I'll check back regularly, cheers.
His Regimental Number tells us he originally joined 3A District Depot, Kingston.....The only way to confirm is to get his military records, but since he is still alive, only he can order his complete records. I'll see what else I can find for you
If he served with the Toronto Scottish, the battles they were involved in were:
The Dieppe Raid, Bourguébus Ridge, St André-sur-Orne, Verrières Ridge, Falaise, Falaise Road, Clair Tizon, The Laison, Dunkirk 1944, Antwerp-Turnhout Canal, Battle of the Scheldt, Woensdrecht, South Beveland, The Rhineland, The Reichswald, Goch-Calcar Road, The Hochwald, Xanten, Liberation of Groningen, Oldenburg
