Welcome, my sister in law is a Canadian so I empathize with you.
On this site, in my short experience, I find that if you ask and you will receive. Somebody will know the answer to you questions or where to direct you.

Thanks for the info. Interesting that the file indicated he was born in the Irish Free State which he was not. Actually he was born 58 Ardenlee Avenue Belfast Northern Ireland (source birth notice Belfast News Letter Feb. 1922). The address is the home of his mother's family. Not that it changes anything just an interesting inaccuracy.
Terry was not an unknown nephew/cousin to our family as we visited back and forth over the years.
My research indicated that the 298th was divided into 2 divisions, the 24th and the 25th, part of the 24th mechanized was sent to Europe, I believe. What the rest of the 24th did during the war is unknown to me. Any suggestions?
Great job and thanks for taking time with such an obscure request.

Thanks for the info. Didn't know of the genealogy newspaper bank-looks interesting. I do have Terry's grave location in Calverton Cemetery on Long Island. Thanks for taking time with me for without his service file his movements throughout WW2 are proving impossible to follow.
