HISCO does not have categories for the following but I have come across them on attestation papers multiple times:
CPR = Canadian Pacific Railway
RNWMP = Royal Northwest Mounted Police (merged to form RCMP in 1920) [http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/history-rcmp]
Incorrect Attestation Papers
Major Samuel Charles Richards (http://www.canadiangreatwarproject.com/Searches/soldierDetail.asp?ID=95956) links to the attestation papers of Stanley Arthur Child (nothing in common) instead of his own.
Proper attestation papers for Samuel Charles Richards: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/image.aspx?Image=602380a&URLjpg=http%3a%2f%2fdata2.archives.ca%2fcef%2fgpc015%2f602380a.gif&
However, his CGWP profile contains info not present on his attestation papers.
Note: No profile for Stanley Arthur Child in CGWP (searched by name and regimental number)
Hugh John McLean's CGWP profile links to a 404 Government of Canada page. Working link: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=161843

Ran into problem while trying to classify “shipbuilder”. HISCO has two listings: Wood Shipwright, 95440 and Metal Shipwright, 87450, but doesn't have a generic category for shipwright, so I do not know where to put the shipbuilders that don't specify whether they build wooden ships, metal ships or both.
To Do on 4/28/2016
- Switch those linked to student, at college to student and delete student, at college
- What is the difference between the two teacher categories?
