Re: RCASC 1939-45

Well, just an update..

In my continuing search I have found one Sergeant Edward Douglas Whitehead with the service # D-76570 who seems to have enlisted 2 October, 1939 with the RMR. My Grandfather enlisted 29 September, 1939 and his service # was D-76535.

Still digging...

Re: RCASC 1939-45

The missing "E" designations for TC 1 were:

E.4 Aquitania
E.5 Empress of Australia
E.6 Duchess of Bedford
E.7 Empress of Britain
E.8 Monarch of Bermuda​

Also, it was brought to my attention that the information I'm after appears on reel C-5609 which is not available online yet?

Re: RCASC 1939-45

It was a message sent to me from someone else who had confirmed the codes of only those 2 ships. I have no idea where he may have gotten the info from.

Re: RCASC 1939-45

Mike, I’m getting a little closer. I found this info: Saskatoon Light Infantry (MG). One half of the battalion embarked on board the "Duchess of Bedford" and the other half on board the "Aquitania". On the SLI (MG) records, it says that 1/2 the Battalion embarked on E6 ........and we KNOW that the ...

Re: RCASC 1939-45

I still haven't figured out what ship he sailed on, on his way across the pond.
I did call the Sudbury Legion (Br. 76) to see if they had any information, all they had was that he was indeed a member, his Regimental number, date(s) of service, his discharge, and death information.

Re: RCASC 1939-45

I thought it odd too, Temujin. No worries. I did fire off a couple of emails to you, and have just finished scanning a few pages for you to review, another email incoming shortly. His time there should be more present in the files you have access to.. He passed away in 1957, 12 or so years before I ...

Re: RCASC 1939-45

Your welcome Mike. I can help you more. I see your grandfather transferred to the RCASC, and their may be more I can help you with that. BUT I probably can help decipher his military records for you, and tell you more “where he was when” so to speak. So if you will like that type of help I will need...
