    Ade, great research on this man. It is quite amazing that you were
    able to find out so much about him from a name on a disc.........!

    Thanks Steve.

    I got a real kick out of researching this one. My real enjoyment than spending a large amount of money on a more "glamorous" item.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Wow...what a super cool story to go with that tag. That troop being part of the RNWMP, he would have been tough as nails BEFORE being part of Vimy. The Mounties only took hard men into the ranks, which would explain why he survived being enlisted in the 46th "Suicide Battalion". That is an incredibly rare dog tag you have Ade...

    Great research, Adrian.

    The 46th Bn. CEF was the subject of "The Suicide Battalion" by James L. McWilliams and R.James Steel published by Hurtig, Edmonton in 1978.

    It's a few years since I read the book and can't spot F.Stevenson. (However D.R.Stevenson figures prominently).

    Of course, many units in WW1 referred to themselves as being suicidally inclined (for good reason), but the 46th Bn. certainly paid their dues.

    Best regards,

    Pat
