     Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "McIntosh, James".
Analysis:
     Of six Saskatchewan soldiers with the surname McIntosh and with "James" as a given or middle name, none are obvious matches to this honour roll entry. There was a Donald James McIntosh with a Saskatoon post office box as his address; as well as a James McIntosh from Vance, which is in the Wilkie area. These appear to be the best possiblities.2

     Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "Picketts (sic), William".
Other comments:
     William was living at Asquith working as a teamster when he volunteered in 1916 and served until the end of the war. He was wounded in 1917. During WWII, he served in a Canadian version of a Home Guard, the Veterans Guard of Canada. It is unclear to me whether he was born in Ontario or in England. Seemingly reliable sources support each place. In 1925, he married Ada Walton who was from the area where he grew up in Ontario. They adopted a son, Billie and when he was 9 (in 1937) she passed away after a one week illness. They were living in Biggar at that time. He probably married his second wife, Jean in the late 1930's or early 40's. It appears they adopted Billie's brother Vernon, although he later went by a different surname. Jean and William had four boys, Patrick, Brian, John and Gordon. Jean and William probably divorced since their son John's obituary refers to his mother as Mrs. Fred Kinzel of Edmonton. By 1945, William was probably living in Saskatoon, The Henderson's Directory for that year lists two entries for William Pickett. One was working as a janitor for the Star-Phoenix. The other was a driver for Mackenzie & Thayer. In 1950, William and Jean were living on Adelaide and he was a janitor for Community Apartments. In the 1955 directory, they were still on Adelaide, and he was a foreman at the Veteran's Hospital. In 1960, he was listed as retired, still at the same address with two of his sons, but Jean is not listed.6

Canadian Military Service - WWI

     William Pickett of Asquith began military service on 10 January 1916 at the age of 23 at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, joining the 65th Battalion. He was an unmarried teamster with no previous military experience. He was described as being 5' 5 1/2" with a dark complexion, brown eyes and dark hair. It was also noted that he had scars on both legs and thighs. He was assigned regimental number 472938.1
     On 18 June 1916 at Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, his unit embarked for England on the "S.S. Empress of England."1
     On 8 December 1916 at France he joined the 44th Battalion.1
     On 10 May 1917 at Wimereaux, Pas de Calais, France, he was admitted to No. 32 Stationary Hospital for a gunshot wound to his left wrist.1 Pte. William Pickett ended military service as part of general demobilization on 31 May 1919 at London, Middlesex County, Ontario, Canada. In addition to the scars mentioned on his enlistment physical, it was noted he now had a through and through wound on his right forearm. He intended to return to Asquith.
