World War 1 St. David Parish Volunteers

(1915 - 1917)

The following partial list of men volunteering for the Canadian Expeditionary Force overseas is from the Philip Christie Collection microfilms at the St. Croix Public Library in St. Stephen, NB, - film #12328. The number MAY also reflects the designation at the Public Archives of New Brunswick in Fredericton

The lists appear to cover the period from late 1915 until late 1917, and cover all of Charlotte County. The St. David individuals have been excerpted.

By 1915 many of the younger men had left St. David for jobs in St. Stephen, Calais, or at the Milltown Cotton Mill, or further afield to cities like Boston. Thus it is not surprising that the list is not longer. By late 1917 conscription had come into force, by the way.

In addition, the list of personnel files from the National Archives of Canada has been consulted, and where a firm identification can be made with an individual, the file number has been added. If you write to the Personnel File Division of National Archives, the WW1 personnel file of an individual, with its marvellous detail, can be ordered. It is well worth doing so. - Tom Moffatt.
