Vimy Ridge Day

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) announces the addition of 200 digitized military personnel records to its Lest We Forget website. The records represent 100 men and women who served our country in the First World War, and 100 in the Second World War.

Find the files at Digitized Military Files

In their announcement LAC acknowledges Ancestry.ca who made this work possible.

Am I the only one who finds it a shame that the Government of Canada cannot itself fund such digitization without relying on support from a US-based company?

Please note that "Each PDF file is a selection of various documents from each of these individual's military service file."
