Canada Lookup Request / Re: Looking for information on Robert Edward Colby
« on: Friday 07 December 18 18:04 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

Canadian WW1 service file for Robert Edward Colby aka George Slater served with the
No. 2 Tunnel Co. He attested Dec. 8, 1915 in Calgary, Alberta.
His service file can be seen here, it is very slow to load, 71 pages

Hi,

Hmm, that is page 3 of his service file. Was that the only page besides his attest. papers...just
curious.

You're welcome  :)

I'm sorry I just assumed you had his Canadian service file as you had his date of death.
Library and Archives Canada has just completed digitizing all the WW1 service files.
In case you need these in the future, this is the main search page

Thanks Eileen  :)

The mention of London was much older 1918ish. Just chanced it, as I knew London was a
regional center at one point for Vet. care.

Hi,

There was also a mention in his file of London, Ontario. He did serve in the 99th Batt.

I think this may be him in Woodland Cemetery, London, Ontario, Page 18 #29

Canada Lookup Request / Re: Need Assistance with Flan (Clarence) Mcadam New Brunswick
« on: Saturday 01 December 18 15:27 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

Flan is an unusual name.

His headstone doesn't agree, but have you considered the death of Flamet Anthony McAdam in 1964,
in New Brunswick. Parents Anthony McAdam and Hannah Riley.
