  • Notes 
    • Clarence Victor "Vic" Bryden, 1897-1976, was born in Lethbridge, Alberta. He enlisted in the 56th Battalion in May 1915 and served as a sergeant in England and France with the 31st Battalion. He moved to Calgary in 1920. In the 1920s he worked on ditches for the Turner Valley-Calgary pipeline. In the 1930s he and a friend, Robert Bruce Nelson, from Washington, USA, ran a mud plant called the Viscolite Plant in Longview, Alberta. This later closed, and Vic received his welder's certificate in 1948 and worked at construction sites around Alberta. He married Marguerite H. Nelson, the widow of his friend, Robert Nelson, in 1964. She had five children, Bruce, James, Douglas, Edith (Sulliman), and Nancy Heckler. Later in life Vic taught welding at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) and was a welding inspector, while Marguerite was a nursing assistant.
