     Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "Condy, Albert" of Winnipeg (possibly).
Other comments:
     TENTATIVE IDENTIFICATION: This may be Albert Ernest Condy, 148502 of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police, but I have found no evidence of an Asquith connection. He died in California in 1973.
     He received a gunshot wound to his head during the war, and married in 1919 in British Columbia
Analysis:
     There is no other "Albert Condy" in the Soldiers of the First World War database maintained by Library and Archives Canada.1,2

James Cull1

M, #39655, b. 1875, d. between 7 December 1944 and 9 December 1944
Father*(?) Cull1
Last Edited21 Mar 2020
     He was born in 1875 according to his grave marker2 or circa 1874 according to a news item about his death since he was said to be 71.3 Alternatively, he was born on 1 August 1878 at Banbridge, County Down, Northern Ireland, according to his WWI service file. The older the enlistee, the less I trust the birthdates they provide on their enlistment papers. If they wanted to join up, they may have made sure they were not considered to be too old.1
     He died between 7 December 1944 and 9 December 1944 in the Lizard Lake district, 20 miles North of Biggar at Saskatchewan, Canada. He died of exposure. Note that the news item about his death gives his age as 71 which is at varience with his age as stated in his WWI service file.3 James Cull was buried at Sonningdale Cemetery, Sonningdale, RM of Eagle Creek No. 376, Saskatchewan, Canada.2
     Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "Cull, James" of Asquith.
Other comments:
     James may have worked for James Stack, Sr. of Asquith prior to the war because in May 1917, Gunner James Cull arranged a special pay remittance of $60 to him. This may have been a loan repayment. For the duration of the war, his pay was remitted to the Union Bank in Asquith which served as his "agent."
     At some point his address was changed to Lizard Lake, but this could have been after the war. A 1922 news item states he returned there for the summer, after "selling out" the previous year and going to the coast.
     A 1944 news item about his death by exposure indicates he moved to Vancouver Island in 1938 and returned to his Lizard Lake farm in 1943. This same article mentioned military service in India, but he did not report it in his WWI Attestation of previous military service, unless the 3rd Mountain Battery, C.F.A. was not identified correctly.4,3

Canadian Military Service - WWI

     James Cull of Asquith began military service on 10 February 1916 at Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, joining the 44th Battery, Canadian Field Artillery and almost immediately, on Feb 26th, embarked overseas. He had previously served from Oct 15, 1895 to Nov. 1, 1903 with the 3rd Mountain Battery, Canadian Field Artillery. He was described as being 5' 10" with a fair complexion, blue eyes and fair hair. He was assigned regimental number 308722.1
     On 14 July 1916 he embarked for France.1 Gnr. James Cull ended military service as part of general demobilization on 30 March 1919 at Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, most recently serving with the 31st Battery, Canadian Field Artillery. He intended to return to Asquith, and he had his final pay deposited in the Union Bank there.

     He also went by the name of Jim Cull.2
     The following newspaper article appeared in the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Saskatoon StarPhoenix 13 December 1944 :
Aged Farmer Found Dead
BIGGAR.--Jim Cull, 71-year-old bachelor of the Lizard Lake district, 20 miles north of Biggar, was found dead on December 9 about half a mile from his home. He was last seen on Thursday evening by a neighbor, Claude Blanchard, who left groceries for him beside the road.

On Friday morning the teacher from Asgard School saw the groceries were still on the roadside and also an overcoat and mitts. Upon investigating it was found Mr. Cull had not been home for some time and the police were immediately notified. The old man had apparently fallen asleep and died from exposure.

Mr. Cull was born in Ireland, and came to Canada in 1904 after serving with the army in India. He homesteaded in the Lizard Lake district until 1911, when he moved to Saskatoon. He enlisted in the First Great War and served overseas with the artillery. Returning from overseas he again farmed in the same district, but moved to Vancouver Island in 1938. He returned in 1943 to farm.3
