First World War: information package

First World War personnel files

These information sheets will help to interpret the documents found in the service files of the Canadian Expeditionary Force.

  • The War Diaries

    Service files indicate where enlisted personnel were posted in England, but do not record the locations of military postings or battles in France or Belgium. The files provide the name or number of the unit in which the individual served. With that information, locations and battles can be determined by searching the relevant War Diaries.

    Canadian Expeditionary Force units were required to maintain a daily account of their “Actions in the Field.” These logs were called War Diaries and they are a historical record of a unit’s administration, operations and activities during the First World War. The records have been scanned and can be viewed online. Find out how to consult the War Diaries at War Diaries of the First World War

  • How to read a record of service or a casualty form from the First World War

    The entries on these documents are taken from unit Part II Orders. The orders are the administrative directives concerning the movement of personnel into and out of a unit for various reasons, such as leave, hospitalization and transfer to and from another unit, as well as changes in financial or ration allowances, or punishment awarded for service offences.

    Each unit of the Canadian Expeditionary Force issued these orders on a regular basis, and they are collected in our holdings and arranged by unit and date in Record Group (RG) 150, Series 1. However, each entry for an individual mentioned in the orders is placed separately on that individual’s personnel record, with a reference to the order number of the original entry (see remarks column on the image).

    • Report date (first column): Date on which a specific report about the individual is received by a higher authority.
    • Report from whom received (second column): Information about who is making the report.
    • Record of promotions, reductions, transfers, casualties, etc. during active service (third column): The authority is quoted in each case, providing information about the individual that has been noted in the unit administrative orders.

    Note: The terms “taken on strength” (TOS) or “struck off strength” (SOS) refer to the movement of personnel into and out of a unit. They are usually entered in pairs in an individual’s personnel records, recording the departure from one unit and the entry into another, and the dates when such movements took place.

    • Place (fourth column): The place in which the noted action occurred.
    • Date (fifth column): Date on which the noted action took place. It should not be confused with the previous date, which refers to when the report was made (first column).
    • Remarks (sixth column): These are taken from official documents and refer to the Part Il Order that noted the action.

     

     
  • How to read a medal card from the First World War

    The sample document is taken from the service file of Private George Albert Broome, who died of wounds on 7 November 1917. He received the British War Medal and the Victory Medal, but was not eligible for the 1914–1915 Star. One can determine these awards from his medal card in the following ways:

    • In the upper right corner there is a capital letter B, with a check mark through it. The “B” denotes that Mr. Broome was awarded the British War Medal, and the check mark indicates that it was sent out.
    • In the same corner is a capital letter V, also with a check mark. The “V” denotes the award of the Victory Medal, and the check mark indicates that it was sent out.

    Note: If there is only one letter on the card, only one of the medals has been awarded. This is most likely the British War Medal.

    • Eligibility for the 1914–1915 Star is determined by Theatre of War and Date of Service. If Theatre of War reads France, and Date of Service shows a date before 31 December 1915, the soldier is eligible for the Star. In this case, we can see that Mr. Broome was transferred to France on 21 January 1916, and is therefore not eligible for the Star.

    Note: If Theatre of War reads England, and the Date of Service is before 11 November 1918, the soldier is only eligible for the British War Medal and only a capital letter B will be written in the upper right corner. Soldiers who never left Canada are not eligible for any service awards, and consequently there is no medal card in their service files.

  • Criteria for the award of First World War Theatre medals

    • 1914–1915 Star: Granted to all officers and other ranks who actively served on the establishment of a unit in a Theatre of War, for example France or Belgium, between midnight 22 November 1914 and midnight 31 December 1915.
    • British War Medal: Granted to all officers and other ranks, who either entered a Theatre of War on duty, or left places of residence and rendered approved service overseas, on or before midnight 11 November 1918. According to regulation, all veterans of the Canadian Expeditionary Force who proceeded to the United Kingdom were eligible for the award. In addition, the medal was awarded to all naval personnel who performed 28 days of mobilized service anywhere. It was also awarded to those who proceeded to the British West Indies and to Siberia.
    • Victory Medal: Granted to all officers and other ranks who actually served on the establishment of a unit in a Theatre of War on or before midnight 11 November 1918, and to those officers and other ranks of the Canadian Expeditionary Force who proceeded to Siberia.

    Note: Decorations such as a Mentioned-in-Despatches, Military Medal or Military Cross, Distinguished Service Order, etc. are not indicated on the medal card, but are entered on the individual’s Record of Service and Casualty Form, along with the number (issue) of the London Gazette in which the award was promulgated.

  • How to read a Memorial Cross card from the First World War

    The first line provides the name of the soldier, his regimental number, rank and unit.

    Medals & Decs
    This abbreviation (also written as M&D) refers to the medals and decorations that were sent to the next of kin of the deceased soldier.
    P. & S.
    This abbreviation refers to the memorial Plaque and Scroll. It was issued to the next of kin as a commemoration of the soldier’s sacrifice in the service of the King.
    Mem. Cross
    This abbreviation (also written as the Cross of Sacrifice) refers to the Memorial Cross. It was issued to the mother and/or widow of the deceased soldier.

    The other dates entered on the card refer to when the plaque and scroll were despatched to the next of kin by the government, and when medals and decorations (M) were awarded. The number C37475 signifies the number of the Medal Roll on which the awards are registered in the soldier’s name.

     

     
  • Next of kin

    The recipient is deemed the blood next of kin of the deceased at the time the memorials are distributed. The order of the next of kin is defined as follows.

    1. widow
    2. eldest surviving son
    3. eldest surviving daughter
    4. father
    5. mother
    6. eldest surviving brother

    For example, a Private in the Canadian Expeditionary Force would be paid $1.00 per day plus an additional 10 cents per day for being in the field (on the battlefront).

    Permission was given to officers, non-commissioned officers and other ranks to assign a portion of their pay, not exceeding four-fifths of the monthly amount, to their relatives. The amount was instructed to be in dollars only (no cents), and the maximum amount assigned by a Private was $25.00.
