I am a History graduate from University of Victoria in British COlumbia Canada. Currently I work as a full time reserve Army Captain in Ottawa Ontario and have an interest in WW1. My home area in British Columbia sent a Battalion to the Somme and most other Western Front areas. It was the 54th Canadian Infantry Battalion, part of the 11th Canadian Infantry Brigade of the 4th Canadian Divison.
The website is at http://apollon_2.tripod.com
I am also interested in the 102nd Battalion of the 11th Brigade see http://www.donlowconcrete.com/102.
I am currently involved in a project to map the travels of the 54th Bn on the Western Front and may well do the entire 11th Brigade using maps from the Trenchmap CD of the Imperial War Museum and the IGN French National Mapping service.
These battalions comprised many Brits who had came over to Canada in 1912 - 1914 and then went back to the UK for training. Many never returned from France.
My contribution? I can assist with Canadian facts and figures and I also offer a small paid service on personnel file tracing. See the 54th Bn website.
In addition to the above I am presently starting the 3rd of 5 courses for an MA in War Studies through our Royal Military College. I`ve done papers on the British Army in operations in North America from 1750-1760, USA/UK relations in WW1 and USA/UK relations from 1939-1942. Copies available for those willing to suffer through my torturous prose.
Last summer I was lucky enough to visit Manchester, Blackpool, Salisbury Plain and Shornecliffe - all places the Canadians have spent time in the UK during WW1 and WW2.

I am principal of the Elementary Schools 'Sint-Juliaan' and 'Madonna' in Langemark-Poelkapelle (Belgium, Flanders Fields).
Sint-Juliaan (St.-Julien) was involved a lot of times in the 'Battles of Ypres'. The Vrije Basisschool Sint-Juliaan (St.-Julien elementary school) made several projects concerning the Great War. Some examples:
-In 1998 on 'Open Monumentsday' we worked about the first chemical attack in history. See 'Als je vanzelevens door de Westhoek passeert'.
-On Open Monumentsday in 1999 we worked about living in and after WWI. See 'En toen bouwden we een barak van plak en stak'.
-The school is twinned with the 10th 'Canadians' and 16th 'Canadian-Scottish' bns.
In 1997 the school took the initiative to erect the Kitchener's Wood Memorial to remember the counteracttacks of the 2 bns. after the first German gasattack on April 22, 1915.
As hobby, I work for the project The Great War in Flanders Fields. I made the memorial-database with all the memorials, cemeteries, ... in Flanders Fields. You can also find a database with WWI-links on the site.
Maybe I can help on this forum to search for answers concerning WWI in Flanders Fields.
