Forgot to mention: did he go to Vancouver or Victoria? I ask because the former OTC at Gordon Head (now the campus of the University of Victoria) was used as a Redconditioning Centre for returned Canadian POWs of the Japanese.
I believe that it was in use until the early summer of 1946, and was staffed by RCAMC personnel.
The University of Winnipeg has this listed in their "Winnipeg Grenadiers Collection:"
"About 400 Liberated Canadian Officers And Men Of Winnipeg Grenadiers & The Royal Rifles, Arriving At Victoria, Bc, On Their Last Lap Of Their Homeward Journey, After Being Released From Japanese Prison Camps. Seen Here Is A Contingent Of The Liberated Canadians Led By Lt- Col John H. Price, Rr Of C, Of Quebec. From Victoria They Went To Vancouver By Boat And Then Onto Their Home Cities"
