  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: He operated the A-1 Commercial Photo Service and in the 1940s also owned the Society Portrait Studio.
      He served in World War One with the Royal West Kent Regiment, having enlisted on 23 Jun 1915 (no. G8519). Although only in his early 20s when he joined, he cited one year of previous military experience with the Canadian Volunteers.
      He immigrated via Quebec City in Jun 1919. He gave his destination as Ewings [Landing], Okanagan Lake, BC.
      According to his death registration record he had been in Canada for 40 years or since at least 1920. The same record states he had been working as a farmer for 31 of those years and had retired in 1950; that meant he would have been farming since at least 1919. A record at the Library and Archives Canada indicates he was receiving an Imperial gratuity (pension). [29, 30, 31]
