Unfortunately, this is not quite true Lorine.
I sent a letter to the Archives asking for my grandfather's war records, I
gave his name, birthdate, place of birth, date of death, parents' name and
wife's name, where he was posted.
They sent me records of someone with the same name, but none of the other
information matches. The person was 25 years older, from a different
province, different wife.
I just received these records in today's mail.

There's no need to order them all. Just write a letter to
the NAC, and tell them the names, dates of birth, places of
birth, parents/spouses' names etc - the more you know, the
You don't need the Regimental Numbers to order these WW1
NAC will take a look and try to give you the correct Robert
or William or John based on the info you provide them.
