Secreted away at the University of Saskatchewan is a rare collection of the Second World War Diaries of the Saskatoon Light Infantry! And they have a Search Name Index at http://scaa.sk.ca/gallery/sli/search.php. What a find!
Once again, you have to drill way down in their Digital Project before you discover this, because they only have the Saskatoon Light Infantry as the title, and you may overlook this resource.
But once you go to the site, you will be astounded by what you will find there, which includes -
Summaries and Highlights from January 1940 and July 1941
The names of the officers, and other ranks
The World War II casualties.
So this might be just the resource you have been looking for to complete the history of a veteran in the Second World War.
