Response to Canadian units involved in liberation of Stalag VI-C

The details of the unit you provide seem murky, it would be unusual for any British unit to be attached to both the 3rd Canadian Division and the 1st Polish Armoured Division. Both these divisions served as part of II Canadian Corps, and there were British artillery units at the corps level.

"Motorcycle rider" could describe a number of things, such as a Despatch Rider which is what usually comes to mind when hearing of someone on a motorcycle. But all officers in the Commonwealth forces were required to qualify as a motorcyclist, and thus could be a liaison officer.

Have you received a copy of his service file yet? That would be the place to start.
