Canadian Military Service - WWI

     Earl Wilmet McFadyen of Springwater, near Biggar began military service on 9 March 1916 at the age of 21 at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, joining the 96th Battalion, Canadian Highlanders. He was an unmarried farmer with no previous military experience. He was described as being 5' 10" with a fresh complexion, blue eyes and dark brown hair. On his Attestation (enlistment) papers, he listed his next-of-kin/contact as his mother, Mary Jane Fawcett of Asquith P.O.. He was assigned regimental number 204429.1
     On 26 September 1916, at Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, he was to have sailed with his unit aboard the S.S. Laconia, but instead was quarantined with diptheria. On 28 Oct 1916, he arrived in England aboard the S.S. Metagama. On 09 Nov 1916 he was transferred to the 92nd Battalion, later moving to the 5th Reserve Battalion, and then to the 15th Battalion in France on 25 Apr 1917.1
     On 15 August 1917, he was reported missing in the field at or near Loos or Lens (both are mentioned in his file. They are about 5 km apart) and the next day was recorded as wounded with a compund fracture of the left forearm and was treated at General Hospital #18 at Dannes Camiers. Medical records show that shrapnel fractured his ulna with "a great deal of muscle tissue destroyed" and that the lower 1/3 of his ulna was "gone." He lost nearly total function of his left hand. From there he was treated in a succession of hospitals in France and England until he was invalided back to Canada, where he was treated at the Saskatchewan Military Hospital in Moose Jaw for atrophied muscles in his left forearm. Note that his service file contains two x-rays of his arm showing the deformity from the wound.5 Private Earl Wilmet McFadyen ended his military service when he was discharged as "Physically Unfit - Wounds" on 26 June 1918 at Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. He had served in France for 4 months before being wounded.
