Microform Sequence 29; Volume Number 31829_B016738. Reference RG150, 1992-93/314, 173. Page 213 of 1076. His digitized service file (http://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?op=pdf&app=CEF&id=B2596-S057) identifies him as James Donovan and James Donoven.
  • Documents– On all of his paperwork, the army had spelt his name wrong...it is also noted in the paperwork for his Memorial Plaque that the error had been made.  His medal and Memorial Cross have the correct service number, but again spell his name wrong.
