This list - courtesy of Art Johnson and Stan Scislowski - shows those members of the 48th Highlanders of Canada who died on active service in the Second World War.

Regimental Numbers were not assigned to officers.  Every unit had its own block of numbers to assign from; each Militiary District had its own letter prefix. The rule was that once enlisted and assigned a number, the number stayed with the soldier no matter which unit(s) he was reassigned to.
