     Carl was born on 26 March 1892 in Starbuck, Pope County, Minnesota, USA.3,2 Carl married Lillian Belle Smith on 23 December 1924.1 He died on 15 December 1969 in a local hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, at age 77.4
     The following information is extracted from his obituary. Survivor(s): Lillian Belle Brandvold.4

Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "Brandvold, Carl" of Asquith.
Commemorated on the Asquith Cemetery WWI Plaque:
     The Erland and Kari Brandvold family farmed near Asquith. They came from Minnesota. Two sons, Henry (see Chapter 3) and Carl enlisted but Henry then "defaulted."
Other comments:
     At the time of Carl's enlistment, he signed his name as "Brandwald." Most of Carl's service file uses this spelling, although there are occurences of Brandvold as well. His papers were witnessed by Werner Bostrom (also documented in chapter 3.) After the was, Carl married Lillian Smith who was from Arnprior in Renfrew County.
     It is interesting that of the three Asquith men that the Star Phoenix reported as enlisting on June 26th, 1916, two of them, Andrew Nodvedt and Colin Holgate later deserted. Carl Brantholm (sic) was the third enlistee.2
Canadian Military Service - WWI:
     Carl Brandwald of Asquith began military service on 26 June 1916 at the age of 24 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, joining the 223rd Overseas battalion. He was unmarried and a farmer with no previous military experience. On his Attestation (enlistment) papers, he listed his next-of-kin as his father, L. (sic) Brandwald (sic) of Asquith.2
     On 14 May 1917 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, his troopship S.S. Justice sailed, and arrived in Liverpool, England on May 14, 1917. He proceeded overseas to the 107th Battalion, Pioneer Canadian Engineers. On Jan. 14, 1918 he was appointed Lance Corporal (L/Cpl). He was hospitalized with influenza on Oct. 28, 1918, was invalided to England and released Nov. 18, 1918, so he learned of the armistice while in the hospital.2 L/Cpl. Carl Brandwald ended military service as part of general demobilization on 13 February 1919 in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada,
End of Military Service section.2

     His name was also recorded as Carl Brandwald.2
     See the footnotes below for a link to his on-line obituary that appeared in the newspaper the Saskatoon StarPhoenix published in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, 16 December 1969 .4

     In the obituary of Lillian B. Brandvold who died 28 April 1986, her husband, Carl Brandvold was listed as predeceased.5
