I have been working on a project to make a 100th anniversary commemorative display for the World War 1 veterans from Stony Plain and area. I have looked for veterans that lived within a radius of about 15 miles from Stony Plain either at the time of the war or after, or had immediate family in the area at the time of the war. To this point I have gathered up a list of 191 names.

I am looking for help from our members and friends for any corrections or additions to my list. I would like any feedback prior to the end of March.

I have attached my list of Stony Plain Veterans of World War 1. Andrew Benkovick  aebenkovich@shaw.ca
