  • Notes 
    • A soldier of the First World War. He volunteered. Regimental number 910893.
      He served in the 46th Battalion of the Canadian Infantry (Saskatchewan Regiment).

      Even with the combined efforts of the 11th Brigade's 75th, 85th and 87th Battalions and the 10th Brigade's 46th and 47th Battalions, Hill 145 had not been taken by the end of April 9. Before dark, two companies of the 85th Battalion managed to secure the western summit, but the Hill's eastern slope remained in German hands. The next afternoon, the 10th Brigade's 44th and 50th Battalions wrested the Hill from the Germans. On Thursday, April 12, amidst a driving snowstorm, the 10th Brigade's 44th, 46th and 50th Battalions (two companies), with the 47th Battalion in reserve, captured "The Pimple." The Battle of Vimy Ridge was over. Canadian casualties amounted to 10,602, of which 3,598 were fatal.
