I am researching the 60th battalion C.E.F. from Montreal. It was the second battalion raised under the Victoria Rifles regimental banner. I have done hundreds of hours of research and will enter the data on this website for all to use as time permits.My Goal is to all all 1400 or so entered,and have started with those who did not survive the war. This project,"The Great Canadaian War Project" is an admorable and worthy endeavor and I am proud to support it. If anyone has questions about the 60th please don't hesitate to ask.To those of you that have made this project a reality,my hat is off to you !! Well done.   3/31/2005 Jim Gaffney
I found this site by contact from a friend who lives in Sussex, England and although I have not gotten to all its nooks and crannies, find it interesting. I had a Grandfather(mothers side) who served and my Grandmother's(father's side) brother both served in WW I.   3/23/2005 Betty Goodwin
I am researching my grandfather, who was Norwegian, born 1892, but went to Canada and enlisted in the CEF in Nov 1914 at St Johns (Newfoundland?) under the name Charles Simpson (which he kept the remainder of his life. His Regimental No, was 69918. He married in Basingstoke,Hampshire in England in 1919, where his place of residence was 'Canadian Hospital, Sherborne St John (Hampshire), and his occupation was Corporal, NBRD. I've tried Sherborne St John History Society without much success, and - having just found this great site - wondered if you can help with more information about the Hospital and what NBRD stands for please. If not, any ideas where I may be able to find out more? Many thanks in anticipation! Sandra   3/2/2005 Sandra Hanmer
Great site, found my mother`s uncle,John Morgan Jones and the man who was supposed to be my grand-father and where I get my surname from, James Westwater, but he disappeared to Canada years before my father was born. John Morgan Jones was killed on Passchendale Ridge in November 1917. James Westwater died from the effects of being hit by lightning in the trenches on the Somme.   2/24/2005 Pete Westwater
What a wonderful site! Just what I've been looking for. I have been researching my great-Uncle, George Dallyn Luscombe, for some time now and will be able to send you details, including photograph, of his service with the CEF. Please tell me how I should do this. Further research could be into other Luscombes on your database. All with Devon connections as Luscombe is a typical county name.   2/15/2005 Carolyn
Great Site, very useful   2/14/2005 Gerry Langford
I am researching the the men and women from Chatham-Kent, Ontario that went over with the First Contingent CEF. To date have the names of over 60 men who were part of the 1st Bn. Western Ontario Regt. and some 5 men and 1 nursing sister that went over with the 1st Cont. as part of the CAMC. As well I am looking for any Home Children who enlisted in the services during W.W.I from Kent County, so far I have found six. Any information would be greatly appreciated. A wonderful website with a great deal of interesting information.   2/12/2005 Jerry Hind
I have information about Lieut Harold Thomas Bowen,2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles, died of wounds 2 January 1918. He came from Stoke Poges and we are to publish a book with biographies of all our men who died in the great War. We are looking for a photograph of him. His brother Captain Martin Bowen,M.C. was also killed in the war. I have acopy of Harold Bowen's service records.   2/6/2005 Lionel Rigby
