For Canadian Military records....google "Canadian Archives Military records" and
go from there. I know you can get copies of the records as I have the records of two or
three of my relatives.

Hi Valerie and Shirley
If the soldier was discharged in Britain, his discharge papers should be at
the British National Archives and accessible online. If he was discharged
in the colonies, his papers may not be in the Archives. I found one brother
discharged in England in 1814 whose papers are on the Archives site, and the
other discharged in Kingston, Ontario in 1824 whose papers are not on the
I haven't found the Kingston discharge papers anywhere, but have found quite
a bit of information about his discharge and army service included in his
petition for Crown land in Ontario.

I am tagging on that as well. I need my grandfather's discharge papers too.
He was in Canada though by sometime in early 1900s.
