Free Canadian war diaries are mentioned on this thread: http://ww2talk.com/forums/topic/54438-war-diaries-through-heritage-canadiana/?hl=%2Bcanadian+%2Bwar+%2Bdiaries Unit Missing Men files in the WO 361 Series are a gamble but can hold gold regarding the death of an individual soldier. There's a thread on the forum somewhere that identified through the units missing men file not only how a man died for a relative seeking information on him, but where he was killed and what Company he was in via eye witness accounts from the soldiers that were fighting with him at the time. For the life of me I can't find the thread now.
