Well here is a story!! I just bought a Family Group that is local to me, Photos and some paperwork.
The Father was the Bandmaster for the 116 Battn CEF ( the 116th was the highest numbered CEF unit to see combat)
When I first looked at the group, I see that the Father had died Dec 11 1918 as there is his Memorial Card with Photo. So I thought the rest of the stuff was the Sons, who Served with the Ontario Regt in WW2.
WELL... After looking throught the the Canadian Roll of Honour, I could not find "Frank Crawford" listed
Well the passport that was with the group was his, and it was issued in 1960!!!! I checked the records and it was his, so notice of his Death was somewhat premature. He served with the 34th Regt Between the Wars, then with the Ontario Regt in WW2 ( the 34th became the Ontario Regt) His Son was also an Officer with the Ontrs during the Second World War
In all my years of Collecting I have never seen a Canadian Memorial Card for a Living ( surviving) Soldier.
I have seen Names on Canadian Memorials or those that Died, that in fact had not Died, including at least 2 on the Vimy Memorial.
So here are some of the photos, including one of the 116ths Band in France.
