Hello and help. my wife has lost an uncle by the name of Walter Candy, this is the story so far. walter was born 1897 in Ashby de la Zouch, England. He was in ww1 Houshold battalion Grenadeir Guards, Regiment No 386, rank Trooper. Houshold Battalion, Grenadier Guards, private reg No 30655. Royal welsh fusiliers No 30655, .. However walter emigrated to canada in 1928, although he may have been there on other periods and that is where his family lost him he never made contact with his family again. After some digging around the only glimmer of hope I have found is a ww2 war grave in Calgary (Burnsland) Cemetery, Calgary Alberta as a 2nd Lieut Royal Welsh Fusiliers Dd 13th Feb 1939. Is there anyone in this area who may have connections i.e. kin His headstone is on this website.... https://billiongraves.com/grave/WalterCandy/15611205#/

Died,  13 February 1939 Black Diamond, Calgary Census Division, Alberta, Canada
