It doesn't surprise me that Felix and Elbert were transferred from the Navy to the Army as while there was Navy here in Canada during WW1, they needed men on the ground, fighting for King and country.
Felix and Elbert could have easily transferred from one branch of the service to another.
Since Canada was part of the Dominion of Great Britian, they went to war when Great Britian did. A great loss of men took place during the war (especially at Vimy and Paschendael) so they needed as many men as possbile (even beginning conscription in 1917).
So anyways, it doesn't really suprise me at all.
