Default Info wanted: Angus Macaulay, "C" Troop 87 Canadian Medium Battery RCA

Bonnie asked me to share this message as she is looking for information about her father Angus Macaulay.

He served in "C" Troop 87 Canadian Medium Battery RCA.

Dear Sir/Madam

Above is a photo of my father Angus Macaulay (1st small row, far right) and his troop in Holland. He served from November 1942 until January 1946.

This photo has been just recently discovered and I am searching for any info about his activities during the war as this was something he never spoke of a when he was alive.

Also, please feel free to use this photo in your forum as it is still in fairly good condition and you can see the menís faces. The original is quite large 16x24.

Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards, Bonnie Brekelmans
