Regimental Number: 467441
Rank: Sergeant
Branch: 5th Battalion

Sydney was born in Birmingham, England on October 28, 1883. He was living in Alberta when he enlisted in the Canadian Army in October of 1915. On March 21, 1917, Sydney suffered from shrapnel wounds to his right thigh (his tibia was fractured). His medical records note that this was an accidental injury; although this happened in France, it may not have been received while in action. In 1920, Sydney filed on NW 26-77-24-W5 and NE 27-77-24-W5. Sydney died on March 26, 1943 and was buried in the Watino cemetery.
