From the start of the First World War, CEF units were required to maintain a daily account of their “Actions in the Field.” This log was called a War Diary. The War Diaries are not personal diaries, rather they are a historical record of a unit’s administration, operations and activities during the First World War.Regards;Gary----- Original Message -----From: RoseMarie McleanTo: dist-gen@...Sent: Monday, April 04, 2005 10:59 AMSubject: Fwd: WW1

I have been doing some browsing and can't seem to find any data on the movement of Battalions, etc. in WW1. Does anyone know of a site or a book or two which will allow me to track the travels of my Grandfather (William James BUTLER (39 - 2 mos) and two Uncles who served in France. He was a Sapper and the young men were 19 - 11 mos and 17- 8 mos.
Their regiments were from Winnipeg:
They all served in France.
Willam James Butler - 8th Battalion
1st P. B&T Unit
Albert Butler -- 208rd Overseas Battalion C.E.F.
18th Reserve Battalion
Wounded 2 aug 1918 - lost L leg
Charles Butler - 100th Battalion
Charles also received a Good Conduct Badge
Can War Service Badges be looked up?
Thanks for this. I have all the Attestation papers and Discharge papers. rm
