Names, service numbers and home towns were determined by comparing faces from the above photo with individual photos in the 193rd Battalion's picture book that was printed just before the battalion went overseas. Information was then cross checked with the 193rd Battalion's Nominal Roll and the online service records from Library Archives Canada.
