Just got some additional information that may help your client track down grandmother's brother, if they have a surname. This site lists all soldiers from Canada WW1 and they are scanning in their Attestation papers which are available online. It's a work in progress, so all depends on which letter of the alphabet they have reached. <>.
If he died overseas <> lists soldiers, regiments and gives information on how they died and where they were buried. I hope they are successful.

Thanks for the welcome, too. I hope to send something as soon as the latest phase of our house renovation is finished. Sure wish I could use the magic of Photoshop on it instead of the real tools.

The photograph appears to be that of a lance corporal in the uniform of the Canadian Mounted Rifles. Judging by the cap badge and collar dogs he had enlisted in 2 Regiment C.M.R. This regiment's recruiting base was in Victoria, B.C. in 1915. The unit was sent overseas. Once in Britain, the unit was dismounted and the name changed to the 2 C.M.R. Battalion of the 8th Infantry Brigade of the 3rd Division of the C.E.F. It served in France from 1916-early 1919, before being returned to Canada and demobilized. The photograph was probably taken somewhere in Canada prior to embarkation for Europe.

I hope that this information will be of use to you.
