My father was a member of the 12th Field. His name was Donald Arthur Church. He passed away in 1969, I was only 9 at the time, so I don’t remember very much of him. I do remember going to the camp ground in Arthur. Would appreciate any information that other members may remember.
Thank you for your message,
Our records from the archives show your father Gnr. D. A. Church, 43rd D Battery – #B11920 – Municipality based: Caistor Centre; if this matches your records?
So amazed by this site. My father, Gordon Kenneth Harrington, was in 16th Battery. He entered the line on July 25th and was wounded on September 6th. Dad passed in 1973 without ever having breathed a word about his wartime experience. Everything I know about his war I’ve learned from his and the Regiment’s records.
This site has added so much to that picture and I can’t thank enough those that have put it together. I would love to view the documentary and will file a request.
Again, thank you for this amazing tribute to the 12th.
