“A” Company, 18th Battalion Mystery Photo

A photograph posted previously, purporting go be of “A” Company, 18th Battalion. The photograph is addressed to a Mrs. Paris Anderson of Crediton, Ontario. The inscription reads:

“”Sandling Camp, September 1.4.1915. Tuesday evening 5 p.m.

Dear Paris, This will let you know the time we are leaving England. This shows ‘A Co’ y ‘ 18th Bn. resting in Hatch Park. Am quite well, hoping you & family are the same.


Lyle “.

Crediton is just west of Centralia, Ontario.

A preliminary search for a soldier called “Lyle” has not found anything as of yet. A search under the surname Anderson nets no credible results.

Any ideas:

18th Battalion A Company
