Many thanks to Richard Bowes for this photo, who obtained the image from his brother-in-law, Michael James MacLellan (better known as Jamie MacLellan). Richard says: " My wife's father was on the Kamsack. His name was Michael MacLellan [and was] from New Waterford, NS. "
These names and ranks were submitted with the photo. A few ranks don't match the uniforms or badges or are otherwise questionable, and are marked with [*] or [?]. Any help you can give would be appreciated.
