Soldiers

This section displays content submitted by soldiers, or most often, content submitted by their families. Here you will find photographs, memorabilia, letters, paybooks, and other items preserved to show the life of men before, during and after their service. Sometimes the content includes gravestone images and other details which document the final resting place of soldiers killed in action.

Note: There are 678 soldiers' photos in the listing under Weyburn Legion Hall, below. This is the greatest concentration of SSR soldiers' pictures on the Internet. Please help us bring the history of these men and women to life. If you know them, are family perhaps, and have content you would like to share online in their honour, contact the SSR Webmaster. We will make it happen!

For students of history or those who wish to understand the circumstances of a soldier's fate and experience, this entire website is designed to help you. The War Diary will tell you what the regiment was doing on a given date, perhaps the day on which a soldier became a casualty. The Nominal Roll will help confirm for you if one of your family members or loved ones served with the South Saskatchewan Regiment, and if so, their service number is coded to describe where they enlisted. In the Links section you will find the links by which you may obtain the service record for a family member. The service record will tell you in detail what that soldier did and when and where. In concert, the Nominal Roll, War Diary, Service Record, and the content below will give you a set of facts about a given soldier's life before, during, and after service.

Any soldier or their friends, family, or loved ones who wish to submit content in their honour, are welcome to contact the SSR Webmaster.

All content here belongs to the families and soldiers involved. Please respect them by asking permission, through the webmaster, if you intend to use any content here for another purpose. Students may simply include the citation or other bibliographic reference to this web site expected by your teacher or course.
