Remembered Today:

# 706389 John Denver Purchase

78th Battalion

Recommended Posts

I was going to enter this soldier in the G.W.Project but he has 6 pages of papers. He became a Lieut about 9 months after he joined and was attached to the 78th Battn on Dec 12,1916. There only one entry of him in the Diaries then he seems to disappear - wasn't at Vimy Ridge - birth date changed - look at how many outfits he belonged to, plus he was "Illegally absent". Had some heart problems. Can't figure out what outfit he should be credited to. You can put his name John Purchase in the CEF Soldiers Archive, his number is #706389 before he obtained his commission. Let me know what you think.
