I Have a book "Nova Scotia's Part in the Great War" Compiled and edited by M. Stuart Hunt (Captain R.O.), 1920. This is a great reference book it contains a lot of information and photos of Officers from Nova Scotia. It has KIA, WIA, decorations, promotions, etc. I am willing to share. I need the officer's name and unit at least. I will do my best to help those doing research. This is a free service. As long as I can keep up with the questions.

Note: I also have Kingslake's 8 vol. set on the "Invasion of the Crimea" 1868

George - welcome to to GMIC - I wish I had a question to ask you, but, Nova Scotia must be a fairly limited collecting field outside of Canada ? Would be interesting to know how many of our Members collect from this era ? Perhaps you could write something about the Campaigns they took part -in ? I see that you live in the US - does this mean you are in the US Army - or, perhaps live away from Canada ?

Best wishes - I am sure your expert knowledge will have everyone keeping you busy. Mervyn

Thanks for your very generous offer! One of the thinks that keeps me coming back to this site - even though I no longer collect - is not only the huge breadth of knowledge held by the members but their invariable willingness to share it! Welcome aboard, sir!

The book is about WW1 Nova Soctians. I am in the California State Military Reserve (State Defense Force). I retired from the California National Guard in 1991. Yes my rank is considered Army in the State Structure, Even though I am assigned to the Naval Research and Study element. If you google "California Service Medal" you will probably get one of my articles. Gooed Luck. Captain (CA) George Albert
