Hi: I am just new to this form and unsure how it works or what information I can get for a solider(s) who served in WWII and in particular Cape Breton Highlanders. Looking for info from the time a soldier enlisted to serve until he was discharged. Not sure if records from WWII are sealed or are they available from somewhere else ?

Boomer, if the soldier died in service, his or her records are available on line. If they survived the war, military records can be ordered from LAC in Ottawa. That is the first thing I would do (order their records). Be aware it can take some time, 6 to 8 months or longer

This link, on this site gives you the information on where and how to order his records
