Hello. Can you post a picture for me , under the Sapper’s forum? This is the 5th Field Co. Royal Canadian Engineers. My grandfather, Sgt. Charlie May, is 4th from the right on the first row. I would love to have anybody identify these men. On the bottom it is written No.2 Sect No.1 Trg. Coy. C.E.T.C.5. Petawawa August 26, 1941.

Thank you. Lorraine Campbell

I have the company history he and others compiled. Perhaps there is a page with the men's names. Will look.

Hi Terry. I think we have corresponded in the past. Are you talking about Stan Fields? I ask only because you have you told me before you had met him. I have a copy of the war diary and mementos and books from my grandfather. I am putting together photos with a time line, doing a family history of sorts, about my grandfather. .
I have correspondence between my gramps and Stan Fields and was fortunate a few years ago to have a couple of emails between us. I will take all information I can get. Thanks. Lorraine.

I suspected you were asking the same question I had answered before, but didn't want to not respond. Stan was still with us last fall.
