Update to Mossey River Honour Roll

It’s been a while since I last updated the Mossey River Honour Roll in 2016.

With the passing of the hundredth anniversary of Armistice Day, I decided to make a big push to find and link all of the soldiers from the districts of:

  • Fishing River,
  • Fork River,
  • Ethelbert,
  • Oak Brae,
  • Sifton,
  • Waterhen
  • Winnipegosis, and
  • Valley River.

The stats are as follows:

WWI Honour Roll

Community Old Number New Number
Fishing River 0 1
Fork River 17 30
Ethelbert 0 10
Oak Brae 0 1
Sifton 0 28
Winnipegosis 35 101
Valley River 0 5
Total 52 178

That’s one hundred and twenty-six new names I’ve added!

There are still eighteen individuals who I have been unable to find documents for, but I haven’t exhausted all the venues yet. I’m going to do some cross-referencing to see if I can locate the missing documents. Additionally, there could still be some soldiers I’ve missed altogether.

Update

I’ve been working on a new post that is still not finished yet but in the meantime I’ve added a number of names to the Mossey River Honour Roll.

I’ve collected these names from the Dauphin Herald under an article entitled “Dauphin Men in Arms”. It is by no means a complete list, however I hope to update it with more information including date of birth, date of death, and service number.

I will be adding posts on these soldiers including the causality list.

Update

It’s been rather quiet lately on my blog. I’ve been busy with life mostly, however I have added a new page under Mowat Pioneers.

The Mossey River Honour Roll is a collection of names of settlers who fought in WWI, WWII, and the Korean War that I’ve gathered from Memoirs “From The Past”, CEF Attestation Records, the Canadian Virtual War Memorial, the Dauphin Herald, and the Winnipeg Free Press.

It is by no means a complete list, however I hope to update it with more information including date of birth, date of death, and service number.
