      > Hi All,
      > Just to update you, Maureen kindly sent me the scan in which it
      > is crystal clear the Cap Badge is the 90th Battalion (Winnipeg Rifles
      > AKA "The Little Black Devils") and this is also confirmed with a clear
      > view of the "90" in the Collar Dogs.....

      Absent votors list shows: William JUBB, Pte. Canadian Ord Corps 186602, 15 Lockwood Scar, Lockwood, Huddersfield. 1919 (autumn). Confirmed this is correct William as the copy of his Canadian War Registration form shows the same ref number - 186602.

      Ida & children travelled London to St John (NB) on SS Sicilian, arrived St John 29 Mar 1920 (see copy of Ship's list). Willie listed separately (with other returning soldiers) - may just have travelled from Canada Creek, Bay of Fundy (NS) only or perhaps the ship called there first.
