A Hero of World War11

My Winnipeg cousin Lieut John Robert "Jack" Purchase-

a brother of Gerold, Ross and Helen Gayner.


Jack was a Canadian Infantry Officer, A CANLOAN  oficer, attached to the 4th Royal Welsh Fusiliers lost in the Normandy fighting on June 17th, 1944. The Commonwealth Graves Commission and the Book of Remberance in the Peace Tower in Ottawa- available on the Internet- provide Memorials and vital information. The keywords on "FIND" and "SEARCH" usually accesses these records.
