Reginald was born in Lincolnshire, England on August 4, 1885. It is unknown when he first came to Canada, but he enlisted in the Canadian Army in Toronto in July of 1915. Reginald suffered from gunshot wounds to his left hand on September 17, 1916. This happened while he was carrying the wounded out of the trenches. As a result, Reginald’s left middle finger had to be amputated. In 1920, Reginald filed eight different homesteads in the South Peace; however, he canceled them all. By 1922, Reginald was living in Woodbridge, Ontario. He died in Edmonton on January 12, 1940.
