    Service number L

    Post by Wouter on Mon Jan 13, 2014 8:55 am

    Hi Folks,

    Am right now transcribing interviews I did with veterans and one of them mentions 'an old guy' whose nerve had given in right after D Day. I asked him at the time whether or not he was in WWI, but he didn't know. Apparently he was about 45 years old and his name was Wilson and they took him out of the line later that day. The non-fatal casualties for the Can Scots only list a single Wilson as wounded that day, being L101625, Pte Wilson, Milton L. I am curious about the L number, as for the Canadian Scottish it is very uncommon. Is this from somewhere out east?

    The service number you have listed is for No 12 District Depot Regina.

    No, I used the book Service Numbers of the Canadian Army by Clive Law from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] it lists the letter prefixes and blocks of numbers and who they were assigned to. Nothing on individual soldiers.

    Don't worry,

    Look at this link :
