Ebert, Arnold Zerlis

Regimental Number: 904755
Rank: Private
Branch: 194th Battalion, Edmonton Highlanders

Arnold was born in Delhi, Ontario on March 5, 1890. He was living in Grande Prairie at the time of his enlistment in March of 1916, working as a blacksmith. It is very likely that blacksmith “Ernie” Ebert mentioned in the March 1916 Grande Prairie Herald was in fact referring to Arnold (Arnie). Arnold was wounded twice: first, a gunshot wound to his right leg in June of 1917; and later a gunshot wound to his right arm in August of 1918 at Arras.
