     He was born on 4 November 1897 at Tweed, Hastings County, Ontario, Canada.1,4 Henry married Mona (?) in 1928 at Saskatchewan, Canada, assuming they wed about the time she moved to the Asquith district.5
     He died on 10 December 1978 in a local hospital at Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, at age 81.6,7
     The following selected information is extracted from his obituary. Survivor(s): Helen Rhodes, Keitha Johnson and Gordon King. Predeceased: Mona King.7 Henry Broder King was buried on 14 December 1978 at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.6,7
     Introductory Overview:
     Henry Broder King of James Brock King and his wife, the former Mary Isabell Broder, moved to the Juniata area in 1908, building the first general store and post office. Their family included four children, of which Broder was the second, and the older boy. They later sold the store and took up farming just west of Juniata. Checl-out James' page on my web site for his extensive obituary. The Asquith history also includes the family biography. is not included in the Asquith and District Honour Roll for WWI.
Other comments:
     Broder King enlisted June 1, 1918 and was assigned to the Canadian Railway Trooops. However, his "offical" enlistment date was June 5th. My grand-uncle served with them as well, building and maintaining narrow guage railroads right up to the front lines. Broder is the first WWI soldier that I have encountered that wore glasses, although his myopia may not have been diagnosed until his discharge examination. This "disability" did not disqualify him from being a labourer in support services.8
Canadian Military Service - WWI

     Henry Broder King was conscripted on 5 June 1918 at Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, joining the Railway Construction Regiment of the 10th Engineering and Construction Depot Battalion. His military file includes a notation that he "Enlisted previous June 1, 1918." Several forms give his enlistment date as 21 May, 1918 which was the date of his medical examination in Saskatoon. However, all other references in the file use his service date as the 5th. He was an unmarried Gas Engineer with no previous military experience. He was described as being 5' 10 1/4" with blue eyes, brown hair and a fresh complexion and weighing 185 lbs.. On his conscription papers he listed his next-of-kin as his father, James Brock King of General Delivery, Juniata. He was assigned regimental number 2504284.9
     On 10 July 1918 at Niagara Camp, Ontario, Canada, he was diagnosed with goitre while in training.9 Henry Broder King ended military service as part of general demobilization on 11 December 1918 at Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, having ony served in Canada.
