Hi,

Canadian Attestation Papers for Gordon Fraser - born 22 - 2 - 1893 Pembroke Ontario

http://www.rootschat.com/links/01ffc/

The second page isn't showing on the above site but the military files are in the process of being digitalised and when available you should find the complete military file.  Think there was another thread recently where people had found surnames beginning with F were missing so far.

Gordon was 5 ft 8 inches -- 41 1/2 chest (fully expanded)  Range of expansion 5 11/2 inches.
Fair complexion, brown eyes and red hair. Considered fit 30 th October 1915.

This is brilliant stuff Sandra. The research is for Bromley Library who are piecing together information about servicemen that signed a nurses diary. I will send the link.
