WW1 and Canadian forces in Brighton?

by Geoff Robbins 12 January 2015

I’m still filling in gaps in my family tree and have come across a Great Aunt who, in 1920, appears to have married and then emigrated to Canada (I know my father subsequently had a cousin in Canada) but on the Canadian info I have, her husband appears to have originally emigrated in 1909. It is conceivable that he returned to Europe as part of Canadian forces for the war, but does anyone know if there were any Canadian forces in the Brighton area at that time? Thanks all
