These photos are of my grandfather and great uncle in the uniforms of the 46th South Saskatchewan Battalion with whom they served during the Great War. The first photo was taken at Bramshot camp england WW1 circa 1915/16. Standing is my Grandfather Edwin Gard 426323 KIA by a german artillery shell Feb 19 1917 (Arras). He is buried in VILLERS STATION CEMETERY France. Seated is his younger brother Walter Gard later discharged for medical reasons. I have also included a photo of "C" company of the 46th South Saskatchewan Battalion at Camp Sewell, Manitoba in the spring of 1915. My grandfather is 5th from the right directly to the right of the guy with the pipe and Moose Jaw banner. Use them if you wish.
Cheers Jim Gard
