Still doing research on my grandfather. Any advice or guidance on how to find any pictures of the 155th Bn etc are appreciated. I have managed to get quite a bit of detail through the Archives on his time overseas.....just hoping to get more between the time he enlisted and the time he left Halifax in October 1916. thanks!
