Notes on war service: He served in England and was "struck off strength" in Sept 1916 because of pains in his legs and swelling in his knees and ankles. He had suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for the last few years and chronic myalgia. He was sent back to Canada on the Scandinavian on 5 Jan 1917, admitted to the Spadina Military Hospital and in Jun 1917 was admitted to Whitby Military Hospital. He was discharged in August 1917. Notes in his service file say that the condition apparently was caused by his exposure to cold and wet during boyhood as he was then employed driving logs down the Burnt River.
Killed in action? No
