The spelling of Bert Coleman's middle name, Berson, which appears thus on his birth registration, is taken as well from his attestation papers, self signed - several times - on January 23, 1916. Bert's attestation papers were filled out at the time of his signing up for the Canadian Army during the First War. At the time he signed up the family lived at 39 Oak Street in Galt. His parents lived there until his father's death in 1936.
