It sounded familiar

This photograph and the story reminded me of something I had written on another of  my blogs about WWII.

This is the translation of the original.

The daughter of Warrant Officer Roland Dallaire sent me several pictures of her father.

This photo was found amongst some special family memorabilia. I do not know who he is but would love to find out more. He would have been stationed in or around Regina possibly 1939? Is this a Canadian uniform? And any tips on where I could begin my search? I appreciate any ideas.

He is most likely my biological Grandfather. My Mom was born July 1940. So this would mean he would have been in Regina October or early November 1939. So many questions arise over my own genealogy now! Please feel free to share –

Many thanks.
