Second World War photo recovered from problem property

Langley RCMP recover a 1945 picture of Canadian soldiers in Holland that they believe was stolen from a residential break in.

Langley RCMP are hoping to find the rightful owner of a photograph they recovered of Canadian soldiers in the Second World War.

The picture was found when officers were helping Langley bylaw officers with squatters on a property on Monday, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. Police believe the photo was likely taken during a residential break in.

The picture appears to be dated 1945 and taken in Holland.

The writing indicates the group is the Recovery Section of the 10th C.I.B. of the Royal Canadian Electrical Mechanical Engineers.  There is a list of names on the reverse of the photograph to assist with identification.

One of the names is Bill Wilson from White Rock. Many of the other names are from Alberta, and Ontario.

If you have information that would assist police in finding the owners of this photograph, please call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
