Jardine farr dating

I find myself going into my phone book jus lookn at pix of her.During the war there were over 250 battalions raised in Canada but only a small number of them served with the Canadian Corps in France and Belgium.

Most battalions were broken up in England and used as reinforcements to replace casualties in front line units.

Lieutenant Cecil Jardine Farr joined the 222nd Battalion in Winnipeg and after 15 months of training he was drafted to a front line unit and sent to France. Cecil was the youngest son of James Farr and Elizabeth Jardine of Stratford, Perth County, Ontario.

Cecil is buried in Villers Station Cemetery in the village of Villers-au-Bois, 10 km west of Vimy.

The cemetery has 1,200 First World War Commonwealth burials, many of them Canadian soldiers who died at the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

Originally the task had been assigned to the 1st British Corps but early in April it was decided that the 10th Canadian Brigade, including two companies of the 46th Battalion, would carry out the operation.

At am on 12 April companies "C" and "D" of the 46th moved into position for the attack.From the War Diary of the 46th Battalion, the Pimple Operation began at 5 am on the morning of 12 April: ...operations were carried out under very adverse conditions. Beyond the original enemy front line the ground was terribly cut up, and knee deep in mud.Around 1907 he had left Goderich and moved to the small town of Kenora in northwestern Ontario, where he worked in the office of the Maple Leaf Milling Company.About three years later he moved further west and continued to work for the company as a bookkeeper and accountant.Early in March he was sent to France and attached to the 46th Battalion, 10th Infantry Brigade, joining them in the field a short time later.
