Does anybody have access to the war diaries of the 5th Battalion Canadian Infantry (Saskatchewan) Regiment for September 1917; and the PPCLI for May 1915?

If so could you let me have copies.

Thanks

Garth

Hi Garth:

For the 5th Battalion go here.

For the PPCLI go here.

If you need anything further on the PPCLI, I have their two volume history and would be happy to look anything up for you.

Thanks very much. That is exactly what I needed. If only PRO documents were so easily accessible.

Thanks also from me for those links. Now, could you please tell me, where on the Archives page did you enter your search, and what parameters did you use for the search. Many thanks in advance for your answer. Peter Gower, Kingston, On

Peter, from this page:

http://www.archives.ca/02/02015202_e.html

beside Unit Name just type something in;

for example: 3rd Pioneer, 29th, Ambulance, Royal, etc. etc.

This will give you a results screen, you then drill down onto the unit, then images, then the month that you need.

Good Luck, glad to see you here

Hi Peter:

Welcome to the forum.

Broz has given you the direct link to the war diary pages. Let me take you back a step and give you the link to the National Archives of Canada research page here.

You'll find additional helpful research tools such as the 1901 Canadian census and soldiers of the First World War. Coming soon, 'Court Martials of the First World War' - The database of Court Martials of the First World War contains a brief description of the files for those individuals who were charged during the First World War.
