I was sidetracked somewhat when I came across the nominal of the 5th Canadian Siege Battery from their 1917 embarkation and decided to include them in this latest addition. Unfortunately it turned out to be a larger task than I anticipated. The records available for each soldier is phenomenal! One easily gets lost in reading their history and trying to condense it into a single paragraph. I've added the following 5th Siege names and will continue the files as I go. (I still have 400+ names from the original addition).
Acorn, Gilbert Chester; Adams, Wilbert; Aitken, Leslie Poole; Bagnall, John Stanley; Beairsto, Everett Benjamin; Beairsto, Harry Lorne; Beer, Charles Albert; Bell, Joseph Jeremiah MM; Bell, Malcolm; Bell, Robert Irving; Blanchard, John Francis; Boisner, William Archibald; Bonnell, Daniel Alexander; Bonnell, John Sydney; Bourke, Charles Leslie; Bovyer, Elmer Robert; Boyce, Harry; Bruce, Arthur Gordon; Burns, John Harold; Byrnes, Andrew; Murphy, Alfred Edward
Sergeant Burns and Bombardier Bell were awarded the Military Medal.
