Canadian Expeditionary Force - 118th (North Waterloo) Battalion
Notes
The 118th North Waterloo Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (C.E.F.), were trained for service overseas during World War I. Although no individuals have been identified, it is likely that Roy Hilts, the donor's father, is included in the picture. The Berlin Portrait Room was owned and operated by Ernest Denton. He was a photographer in Berlin/Kitchener from approximately 1912 to 1955. He operated photography studios at various locations in the city. The photograph is mounted on a mat. The mat has worn edges, with a small piece missing from the bottom. There are glue and paper remnants across the bottom of the mat, suggesting that a label may have been removed at some point in time. The image has many fine surface scratches, worn edges and a missing bottom right corner.
