If you can find out your Dad‘s service number often called a regimental
number it would be of great help to you in tracking his progress. His
number starts with a letter and is followed by 5 or 6 usually digits
of numbers. The letter will tell you what recruiting area he joined in
and this equates somewhat with the province where he joined. If he
joined in 1939 his number will likely be one of a block of numbers
assigned to a particular unit regiment.

Good Morning, Army,
Thanks to Ian, I am sending out more info on my Dad. His service number
was B-89726. If this means anything to anyone, then I would appreciate
any info.
I have a letter in front of me from my Dad dated 18 Jan, 1943. I am sure
he was in  England at that time, but on it it says 1 Can Corps. I also
know that he spent his training time here at Camp Borden. Maybe this
helps nail it down a little?
Thanks again for any and all help,
Stan Cook
