    Post by pjdgm on Mon Nov 12, 2018 6:02 pm

    Hi Everyone,

    Im new to the forum and i hope this is allowed Ive recently discovered that a couple of member of my family served in the Canadian Army during WW1 and I'd love to see if the medals are still out there?

    The men are as follows:

    Cpl James Deane 100017 66bn VM, BWM, Class A WSB No. 46005, SWB No. C29485 and Memorial Cross

    PTE Robert Ouston 231281 202bn VM & BWM

    Many thanks

    Peter

    UPDATE:

    Deane's medals will be marked with 8 CAN INF for the unit he served with in France.

    Ouston's medals will be marked with 31 CAN INF.

    Good luck. I hope you find them. I'm in Alberta so I can keep an eye out for Ouston's medals. Did he stay in the Edmonton area after WWI?

    Hi Thank you I would appreciate that if you could keep an eye out for the medals.

    Both Ouston and Deane lived in Edmonton before and after the war.

    Many thanks
