Newfoundland At Armageddon


A Great War soldier's file contained many documents : attestation papers, telegrams and letters to the family reporting if the soldier had been wounded, missing in action or killed.  There were also documents confirming if a soldier received medals, reports of conduct and medical problems, letters received from the family, etc. The PDF file below contains the entire dossier of Lance Corporal John Shiwak from Rigolet, Labrador.
