Legion historian Doug Carey is looking for information about the identity of this man, whose photo he found at the Quesnel Legion. Contributed photo

Quesnel – do you recognize this man?

The Legion’s Doug Carey is seeking information on a photo found in the Legion archives

Alright Quesnel, here is a question for you.

Downstairs in our Legion, we have a large number of stored uniforms. I’ve come across this small picture in a silver painted wood frame tucked into a pocket of an unrelated tunic.

This very handsome young man is wearing a Canadian Army tunic from World War II or Korea (I’m uncertain as it is a small photo) I believe he is wearing an Artillery hat brass on his beret that looks to be “King’s Crown” which would date this during King George VI’s reign and I cannot discern the patch on his shoulder.

Does anyone out there recognize this man? He may well be from the Quesnel area and still living here. There may be friends or relatives that might help to identify him. It would be so nice to know his name and a little about him before I display his photo in the Branch.

Any information would be greatly appreciated and you may call the Legion at 250-992-6819 and leave a message for Doug with your contact information and I will get in touch.

Doug Carey is Royal Canadian Legion Branch 94’s historian and a regular Observer contributor.
