  1. Can you give me any more details about Harold and the 18th please. I came across him on a project I am working on to remember those mentioned in the RCL Last Post on line database. He was a bugler and appears to have come through his service pretty well unscathed. Here’s the link to my project.

    • Liz,

      Thank you for the note and your compliment.

      Sadly Harold Aikenhead seems to disappear from the the ability to search for information online. I did a search today and may have found two references for this soldier. He may have been interested in stamps and may be mentioned here and here . Both articles make mention to a “Harold Aikenhead” and reference that person living in London. I also checked out the LAC’s Veteran Death Cards to see if I could get a date and location of death but there is no reference there.

      My recommendation is to see if you can find an ancestry.ca portal at a library and see if you can come up with some marriage and death information.

      You will note that his service record is available and on October 3, 1915 the medical officer makes a notation about him.

      If you read his service record and have specific questions I will do my best to help you. I do have a Facebook Group if you wish to join and will send you an invitation. There are some members there that might be able to help.

      Eric
