Military Service Records:
When a recruit signed up for the Canadian Expeditionary Force in WW I he filled in an attestation paper that indicated his willingness to serve in the military and provided such information as date of birth, next of kin, height, weight, complexion, occupation, etc. As such these papers are of genealogical importance. The links below are to a scanned copy of the attestation papers of George Pass completed on 28 September, 1914, in Valcartier, Quebec when he was inducted into the Nova Scotia Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force until his death in action on 1 December, 1915 in Belgium. During his service he received a gunshot wound to his right hand on 4 July 1915 and was hospitalized in Rouen, France. He returned to service on 24 July 1915 and had returned to the field with the 13th Battalion 7 August, 1915.
