Private Edward Henry Chandler

772129 Private Edward Henry Chandler is the only name that comes up in the archive. Which is that of a young farm laborer, who enlisted at the age of 19 on October 20, 1915 in Brantford Ontario.  There is no C.E.F. Bn on his attestation papers and he was sworn in by a J.P.

The only 1st Bn., C.E.F. is the 1st Bn Canadian Mounted Rifles C.E.F which was from Manitoba.  Private Chandler's marker is located in The Canadian Legion Br 147 section of Barrie Union Cemetery in Barrie Ontario.  If someone out there can provide further information, I would be glad to include it in this blog.
