Hi

Couldn't find it either??
so I've added it again to the readers comments and saved it? alternatively I could send the information to you.
'Joseph Edward Berner
12.7.1915 enlisted Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force in Montreal. Killed in action 17.1.1917 France. Buried Maroueil British Cemetery. Plot 3 Row 3 Grave 15'

I haven't found how he got back to Montreal seeing that he was deported in August 1914.  His brother, Charles, enlisted in the British Army in May 1915 and was died from gun shot wounds December 1915.  Buried in Belgium.

Regards

Lesley

Hi,

Just in case you were not aware - The Canadian Military Files for WW1 are in the process of being digitalised but those with the surname B are now complete.   The complete Military File for Joseph Edward Berner is available on the link below. (First page is a little dark but scroll down and you will find lots of info)

http://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?op=pdf&app=CEF&id=B0680-S005

Or click on the Digitized service file - PDF format on the right hand side of this page (rather slow to load unfortunately)

Hi Ian,
        Sadly neither of these chaps are on our system (yet!).
     
         I suggest you go to the Library and Archives Canada Home Child search page :-

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/immigration/immigration-records/home-children-1869-1930/immigration-records/Pages/immigration-records.aspx

With such a distinctive moniker I quickly found Robert Rockett West as late as 1929. George was more trouble but I think I found him using just "George West". I think he is the last entry in the results (1927). You'd have to satisfy yourself if that is correct.
