We are searching for information on Allan O. EDWARDS (Service Number B/133793) believed to have served with the Toronto Scottish Regiment during WWII.

Two people from The Netherlands have found a silver relic that Allan EDWARDS lost during World War II. The relic was found in The Reichswald Forest in Germany.

The Netherlands residents are trying to locate Mr. EDWARDS or at least obtain some information about him.

If anyone knew Allan EDWARDS and can provide any information at all, it would be very appreciated if you could contact me at the address below. Thank you.

The Canadian Heroes website research team checked the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the Canadian Legion Magazine Last Post. Both online databases did not uncover any listing for Allan O. Edwards.

We then contacted the Toronto Scottish Regiment, of which Allan O. EDWARDS was with. Captain Stephen Roberts (former Tor Scot Public Affairs Officer) and Tim Stewart (Tor Scot Historian), both expended considerable effort in following up on this search.

Captain Stephen Roberts passed the information search onto Mr. Bob Weber of the Canadian Press, who released the information to the newswires where media organizations across Canada picked up the story.

A woman in the Toronto area heard the story over the radio and immediately phoned her neice, Maureen Torreiter.

Maureen is the daughter of Allan Owen EDWARDS. His family has been found.
