I am in possession of a silver cross in the name of Sgt F.H.Pepper.  I am unaware of what unit or division he was attached to. I would like to track down any remaining family to return this.

If you search his parents, William George Pepper and Annie Bridget Armstrong Pepper on Ancestry.ca you may get some results on surviving relatives.

Your profile says you are RCMP, so good luck in your search!

The Peppers had two other sons and a daughter identified in the 1911 census.
