  • Great photo! Is it known what unit/battalion they are?

  • Hello Dawn. Thank you for your comment. The back of the photo, which is available at Library and Archives Canada, states that it is the “87th Battalion receiving mid-day ration within shelled area.” The LAC photo reference number is PA001570. This number can be used to order the photo. Best, Dan Black, Editor. Legion Magazine.

  • thank you for the reply! and thank you for what you do!
