I recently purchased a Canadian army issued G. S. W. Mk1 1941 helmet. Inside the helmet brim by the rim seam is a service number. The letter K is from the British Columbia militia district and the serial number range puts it in the Royal Westminster regiment. It was known as the Westminster regiment during the war. I have sent their regimental museum the information on the helmet and have yet to receive a response.
I know that I cannot research the service number of a living servicemen using the the Canadian military files or the Canadian public service military archives files.
Any ideas? Need help with identifying Canadian soldierNeed help with identifying Canadian soldier
