     He was born on 4 August 1871 at Lisbon, Illinois, USA.1
     Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "Anderson, E." of Asquith.
Other comments:
     TENTATIVE IDENTIFICATION: Andrew Anderson is the only enlistment record I have found so far from the Asquith area that might be this man
Analysis:
     The 1916 census occurred shortly before this man's enlistment. It includes several Anderson families in the Asquith area, but there are none with the initial "E" that would have been old enough to enlist. It also does not include a John or an Andrew of the appropriate age.2

Canadian Military Service - WWI

     Andrew Anderson of Asquith began military service on 25 July 1916 at the age of 44 at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, joining the 223rd Overseas Battalion (Canadian Scandinavians). He was missing a portion of his left middle finger, but this did not impair his ability as a mechanic, his listed occupation. He was described as being 5' 7 1/2" with blue eyes, medium light hair and a fair clear complexion. He was assigned regimental number 294624.1
     On 24 January 1917 at Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada, after his medical examination he was "rejected" for service.1 Andrew Anderson ended his military service on 20 February 1917 at Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, being "Medically unfit for Military Service." He had served in Canada. He intended to return to Asquith after his discharge..

Other comments:
     TENTATIVE IDENTIFICATION: There is nothing in his service file to connect him to Asquith at the time of WWI. His father was located in the Warman area. Reg did not move to the Asquith district to farm until in the 1940's. However, his step-sister Irene became Mrs Fred Warren, so there may have been undocumented connections, resulting in his being included in this Honour Roll.3
Canadian Military Service - WWI

     Reginald Bailey of P.O. Box 22, Warman was conscripted on 15 June 1918 at Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, in the 83rd draft of the First Depot Battalion, Saskatchewan Regiment. He was a single farmer without military experience. He was described as being 5' 4" with a ruddy complexion, blue eyes and brown hair. On his conscription papers he listed his next-of-kin as his father, Nelson Bailey of Warman Post Office. He was assigned regimental number 3352389.1
     From 1918 to 1919 at France he served with the Canadian War Graves Detachment, arriving in France May 18, 1919. In September/October 1918 he was hospitalized in England with influenza, but recovered and was discharged. He had also had the mumps in August of 1918.1 Pte.

Other comments:
     Note that both James Henry and his brother, John Harland, share the initials "J.H." and they both served in WWI. The Asquith memorial entry could be for either of them. I have chosen to document John Harland in the next chapter since James was wounded at Vimy Ridge. Within three years of his demobilizatiion he emigrated to the US and served as a clergyman for the Foursquare Gospel denomination. It's founder, Sister Aimee Semple McPherson, one of the earliest radio evangelists, was preaching at this time. In 1923, she built her hugely popular church, the Angelus Temple, in Los Angeles. It may be considered the first "megachurch."6,7
