    Interesting Find - 13th Battalion C.E.F. - Casualty

    Recommended Posts

    Good Morning Everyone.....

    This weekend had been one of the best that I have ever done on the Garage Sale Circuit as stated in a previous thread about the aerial camera..... Here is the WW1 Photograph.......

    A very large colourized photograph of a member of either the 13th or 42nd Battalion CEF going by the cap badge and the seller saying that Grandad served in the Canadian Army in WW1......

    I got the photograph home and took a very close look at it, written very faintly in pencil on the reverse is the name Robert Carric..... I tried to look up that name and found nothing that would match and then I added a “k” to the end “Carrick”.....

    All the bells and whistles then went off......

    24062 Sergeant Robert Lawson Carrick, 13th Battalion C.E.F.

    Here are his attestation papers a bit hard to read.....


    and here is his CWGC notification, he was killed or died on April 26th, 1915.....

    Battle of St. Julien????? or as a result of gas from Battle of Gravenstafel ????? but anyway the Second Battle of Ypres.....


    The size of the photograph is 17 Inches by 21 1/2 Inches so quite large ......
