     He was born on 21 October 1886 at Bradsjo, Bruk, Westmarunland (Västmanland?) County, Sweden.2 Gustav married Christine Rolin on 18 December 1916 at Asquith, RM of Loganton, Saskatchewan, Canada, according to a notation in his military service file and his 1943 Petition for Naturalization.2,3 Alternatively, they married on 17 December 1916 at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, according to his 1939 Declaration of Intention seeking U.S. naturalization.4,5
     He died on 25 January 1963 at Gresham, Multnomah County, Oregon, USA, at age 76.6,7
     Introductory Overview:
     Gustav Werner Bostrom of Asquith is not included in the Asquith and District Honour Roll for WWI.
Other comments:
     Werner Bostrom was farming in the Asquith district prior to his enlistment in June of 1916. He was wed in Dec 1916, and deserted in about April of 1917. In 1918, He and his wife went to the US, where they remained.8 He witnessed the beginning of military service of Carl Brandvold; "Brandvold, Carl."9 Werner Bostrom witnessed the beginning of military service of Colin Holgate; "Holgate, Colin."10,11 Werner Bostrom witnessed the beginning of military service of Andrew Nodtvedt.12

Canadian Military Service - WWI

     Werner Bostrom of Asquith began military service on 19 June 1916 at the age of 29 at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, joining the 223rd Overseas Battalion (Canadian Scandinavians).. He was a farmer of the Asquith district, single with no prior military experience. Although his Attestation form indicates he was single, the "Particulars of Family..." form was later amended to list his wife, Christina Bastrim (sic) of 136 5th Ave. North, Saskatoon. He was described as being 5' 6 1/2" with a clear and fair complexion, blue eyes and light hair. On his Attestation (enlistment) papers, he listed his next-of-kin as his father, Agust Bostrom of Sweden. He was assigned regimental number 294516.2 Pte. Gustav Bostrom ended his military service circa 21 July 1917. His military file contains a notation that he was a "deserter" dated Apr 21, 1917; with another of July 21, 1917 that I assume is the date he was struck from the nominal roll. From his later US draft registration and naturalization records, it appears they moved to the US after his desertion..
