My dad Gordon William Kelly served with the Saskatoon Light Infantry (M.G.). I am doing a genealogy of my dad in World War II. How do I get more info?

Private Gordon William Kelly; Date of Appointment: 17 Feb 1943 Regina, SASK; Date of Honorable Discharge: Nov 9 1945; Medals & Decorations: 1939-45 Star, Italy Star, France and Germany Star, Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with Clasp and War Metal 1939-45

I would really like to get a copy of his enrollment and a picture of his unit with him in it. He passed on now Feb 2000. But I'am doing a little research on him about the war and wanted it for my children but this is like ring around the roses on the net. He would never talk about the war, so I never pushed.
