Request any military info on my grandfather Ambrose Racicot (aka Ambroise)..Most people seem to think his real name was Ambroise but actual name was Ambrose (occupation Blacksmith )d.o.bApril 12-1896 not April 14 as in many listings. Married to Valeda Joanisse ...Father's name Adolphe-Frederic -mother's name Margueritte Villemaire . Ambrose enlisted Dec 06-1915 CEF Overseas Expeditianary Forces , was at Vimy Ridge(fact) April 9-14 His regimental # 178043 .
If anyone shud have any old military pictures with Ambrose, info ,diaries etc ..would greatly appreciate talking to you .
Family info from way back when tells me he was in the cavalry which could be true as I have seen his spurs when I was a child.More investigation tells me that he may have been part of the 7th battalion ??? Family tells me that over the years his uniform , medals , spurs ,side arm, helmet have somewhat been lost ????( hidden )
Am trying to pinpoint his actual location -date etc at Vimy Ridge with regiment with any proper documentation (for my gedcom files .)
If anyone should have such info , please mail me directly : firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com...
My Entire Racicot Family File to the middle 1400's could be made be available ..
