Corporal Reginald A. Shepherd, The North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment

Post by Phil » Fri May 08, 2020 10:46 am

Posting a query on behalf of a non-member,
I am looking into a certain Canadian WWII soldier named Reginald A. Shepherd. He was in the North Shore NB Reg and passed away on April 5th 1945 in Holland. That I know. But is there more information on him? Like when did he join the unit and when was he sent over to England? Which battles did he participate in?
