Subject: [NFLD-ROOTS] World War 1 Honours -from 1919 Daily News PT 1LIST OF HONOURS
Date: Sun, 13 Aug 2000 20:16:24 -0230


I found the following list in the December 31, 1919 Daily News-listing
all the Newfoundland Soldiers who received honours during the war.
I will send it in several parts.
I found when looking for information about the soldiers of WW1 that the
bulk of information was about those who died. This may be of help to
those related to soldiers who survived the war.
