Rillie, John

Regimental Number: 101409
Rank: Private
Branch: 66th Battalion; Canadian Forestry Corps

John was born in Barrie, Ontario on October 8, 1877 (it is possible that he lied about his age on his attestation paper, as his homestead record states that he was 42 in 1914). In 1914, he filed on a homestead at SE 32-78-14-W6. John enlisted in the Canadian Army in September of 1915. He served only in England; he may have been assigned here because of his age. John died on June 6, 1943.
