Hi Rose,

Sorry I can't help you with the enlistment record, as I already returned the film back in December. However you can try to get it through inter-library loan at your local library. The film is owned by the National Archives of Canada and is microfilm # B-5512. I never got the microfilms with the paylists, I'm still waiting. I might have to request them again. When the enlistment film came it, a note said that the others were out. When and if I get them, I will let you know and keep an eye out for your ancestor.

I photocopied the enlistment records of more than a dozen de Meuron soldiers and each record had 8 or 9 soldiers on the same photocopy page. Anyhow, I went through all those just in case your ancestor happened to be on a page I photocopied already, but no luck there. My library only asked for a $2 donation to help cover shipping of the film.
