'Bill'... W D Buckley of CHARTER Truck Lease Co Ltd Vancouver
« on: Saturday 01 October 16 12:25 BST (UK) »
Hi, I have a business card  of Bill's with several photographs. In a presentation folder of him at 1 month, 1 day, it states; born Aug 26/26.  A photograph with  writing is a studio photo of a sergeant soldier in uniform with a seated lady and small child. On the back it states; 'The Jaques, Dec 1916. Another of a soldier with bandolier (looks like an Artillery cap badge) states 331743 D Mmmwatt (difficult to read) 3274 6th Ave W Vancouver. If there are any Buckley researchers on Rootschat I could forward them on.

The guy with the service number 331743 - is David Brand Watt born 12/10/1881 Muiravonside, Linlithgow, Scotland

These are the links for the attestation papers but they aren't loading properly for me today though - would like to know the address they were at in 1915-1917
