Hey!!
I just found out my Grand Father joined the CEF on March 23 1916, to the 118th Bat. On March 13 1917 transfered to the 149th Bat. any Info on either one of these Bats. would be freakin great. Our family is trying to piece together our past, We did'nt even know gramps was in the service. he's been gone for years and still amazes us.

thanks for any help
