Looking for relatives - L/7222

Discussion in 'Canadian' started by Herman Sligman, May 13, 2022.

  1. Good afternoon,
    Found a personal belonging in an old house. The only identification is L/7222.
    Must be a soldier from Military District 12 (Saskatchewan)
    I gladly will sent it to Canada if there are any relatives who are interested in it.
    But: how can I figure out what familyname is hidden behind L/7222.
    Best Regards
    Herman Sligman

    In a short history of Saskatchewan is this:
    Link: The Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan | Details

    There is no post-WW1 entry for the district later, so I assume it remained valid in WW2. You may have already researched this.

    Going on this information your number is very early:
    From: Enlistment and Training - Memoirs of Gordie Bannerman - Second World War - Diaries, Letters, and Stories - Remembering those who served - Remembrance - Veterans Affairs Canada

    Supported by one four digit service number for a sub-unit for Saskatchewan: http://www.canadiankangaroos.ca/Site/1CACR_Nominal_Roll_files/L_Table.htm

    Checked the CWGC site with him being Canadian and the service number with or without L, no trace that he died in service.

    As communicated to Herman offline, L7222 indicates initial enlistment in 1st Corps Ammunition Park, RCASC.
    dbf and Owen like this.
  6. Thanks from here.

    I'll continue my search.

    Best Regards
