Branch: Canadian Machine Gun Corps
James was born in Port Arthur, Ontario on September 30, 1888. He filed on NE 27-70-12-W6 in 1915, and in December of that year he joined the Canadian Army. James suffered from trench fever in 1917 and was sent to Canada on sick leave. He eventually returned to England for the duration of the war. A present address card in James’s service file indicates that he was living in Port Arthur, Ontario in 1922, so it is uncertain whether he returned to the South Peace after the war. James died in London, Ontario on October 7, 1960.
