My grandfather, "Granda" to his grandchildren, was born on April 12, 1897 at Squid Tickle, Burnside, Bonavista Bay, NL.
He was working in Grand Falls when he enlisted in the Regiment on March 17, 1917. He was overseas for two years. He was wounded September 1918 with a gunshot wound to his left thigh.
After the war he married his girlfriend (together before the war) Levie Ryan and had four children. He died April 10, 1984.
