A bunch of them are Canadian, not British.

I'll give you that one, I'm 100% sure of the others (other than the other *possible, which I'm still looking into).

The ones that I know for sure are Canadian (101% sure):

3rd Canadian infantry div patch is below it (which is light/aqua blue).

"French Grey" - :mrgreen:

Good photos - captions should all be at the National Archives of Canada website.

http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/02011503_e.html

If you search by the photo number it should take you to the description.

Nice collection of photos - where did you obtain them in such a large size? The archives site has considerably smaller ones.
