Default Trying to locate a family member of Lt. A.F. Harris, 7th Recce Regiment WW2

Any help greatly appreciated.

The Royal Canadian Hussars Association has been contacted by a Dutch historian with a request to commemorate the liberation of a Dutch town in
April 1945. Specifically, they are trying a family member of the first soldier into the town which was, according to the war diary, a Lt. A.F. Harris of the 17th Duke of York's Royal Canadian Hussars ( 7th Recce Regiment, 3rd Div ).
We know Harris was born in Oshawa ON on May 6, 1919 and was one of 3 children of Henry and Mercy Harris. We also know he was a replacement officer.
Would any experts on Ancestry be able to locate any family members?

Thanks in advance.

The information you seek exists, although the surviving family members likely live in Connecticut, USA, where Arthur lived as a twenty year old in 1940 with his mother, father and brother.
