Hugh was born in Essex, England on September 2, 1896. He was living in Kings County, Nova Scotia at the time of his enlistment in November of 1914. Like his brother George, he was supposed to be sent back to Canada as a student in August of 1918; it is uncertain whether this actually happened. In 1919, Hugh filed on the southern half of 17-80-7-W6. A present address card in his military service file indicates that he was living in Victoria in 1922. Hugh died on August 2, 1960.
