    Hi Paul,
    The trial and error method again:

    I tried "R K A Grant*" – nothing. I tried "K A Grant*" and got

    https://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/...3=&interval=20

    One click on No.2 and RKA Grant had really No (J9853) and he was a Wireless Operator/ Air Gunner. It is a great advantage to know the branch!

    I tried "J985*" and "Dominion+of+Canada"

    https://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/...da&interval=50

    28 February 1942, page 76 was near but probably March would be better. I tried "J99*" and "Dominion+of+Canada" because there weren’t a lot commisionned Wireless Operators/ Air Gunners – I thought...

    The number 39, 28 March 1942, page 133 was „my“ page…

    That’s all.
