Action : The Second Battles of the Somme 1918 

21 August - 3 September 1918. Following the success at Amiens which Ludendorf described as "the black day for the German army" the conditions were right for the advance to be continued over the old Somme battlefield. Astonishingly the battlefield was crossed in 10 days, compared with the four months of the first battle. The Germans were pushed back towards the Hindenburg Line defences.

In the register of Prince Edwin's Lodge he is listed as a Corporal of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. In the actual military records he is shown as a Private, so appears an obvious discrepancy.
