A fifth unidentified Canadian soldier from the First World War has been identified.
The federal National Defence Department said today that remains found in Hallu, France in 2006 and 2007 are those of Private Sidney Halliday. Four other remains found at the same time were previously identified.
The department and the Canadian Armed Forces are now working with the families of Halliday and four other soldiers and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to find a final resting place for all of them.
Halliday, 22, moved to Manitoba in 1915, and fought with the 78th Battalion, also known as the Winnipeg Grenadiers.
