Barney Hanson


Hanson, Barney, Wynyard, Saskatchewan, formerly of Pembina, North Dakota. Occupation: Labourer. Military Service: Sapper, Reg. No. 294429, 223rd Overseas Bn., 107th Canadian Pioneer Battalion; 1st Battalion Canadian Engineer, Attestation Papers. Possible Reference: “Barney,” Grain Growers’ Note Pad, 1916-1917, p. 46. This is probably the correct Barney, but Julius Silvester Barney is another candidate, if he was attached to C Company 107th Canadian Pioneers before it transferred to the 2nd Battalion Canadian Engineers on 28 May 1918. His personnel file may contain this information.
