Hi David......

The Canadians do not have Medal Information Cards the way the British do..... They are putting the War Diaries on line but they are not there yet......

The LAC is currently working on digitizing all World War One Service Records. They are supposed to have A-D up by the summer 2014 (which we are now into summer) I am awaiting this on pins and needles, as I have 4 soldiers I need to research that fall within this category.
