    Good Evening Everyone.....

    A quick look at the Nominal Roll for the 85th Battalion shows 5 different soldiers with the last name of Gillis. Of these, three were from Cape Breton:

    222758 Pte. Daniel Gillis (Victoria Bridge, Grand Mira, C.B., N.S.)
    222559 Pte. John B. Gillis (Shunacadie, C.B., N.S.)
    223006 Pte. John Peter Gillis (Dominion No. 4, C.B., N.S.)

    Hope this helps.

    The Nominal Roll for the 85th Battalion is available to view/download on the CEF Nicholson Matrix website.
