You may get more info on CEFSG forum via below link.


Also check Canadian Archives for his service record. There is an ongoing centenary digitisation project. There are links on the CEFSG site.

Good luck.

I think his account starts from around 20th April up to what he calls the 'Last Stand' on the 8th May.
