Dave, it looks like 40th was absorbed by 26th Reserve, who were absorbed by 17th Reserve. 17th was NS affiliated; reinforced 25th (5th Brigade), 85th (12th Brigade), and RCRs (7th Brigade) - all saw lots of action.

Ordering his service records from NAC would tell you the the complete story.

Have fun, Peter
