Regimental Number: 101524

Branch: 102nd Battalion

Arthur was born in Shoal Lake, Manitoba on September 11, 1884. He was living in Grande Prairie at the time of his enlistment in October of 1915, though he did not file on his homesteads at SW 33-73-11-W6 and NE 19-73-11-W6 until after the war. His brother Gilbert also served in the Canadian Army. On June 6, 1917 he suffered from contusion on his right side and a fractured rib, though this injury was accidental; he “was practicing bare backed horseback wrestling during which he was injured.” Arthur died in Fairview on May 3, 1966.
