First World War Veteran Alexander Daniel Archibald

Dan’s younger brother, Robert Edmund, attested with No. 10 Halifax Siege Battery on January 18, 1918 and served at the front with 6th Brigade Canadian Field Artillery during the final days of the war. His story was posted to this blog in August 2014.

A special thank you to Claudia Smith of Almonte, Ontario, Captain A. D. and Nursing Sister Mary (Graham) Archibald’s granddaughter, who graciously provided transcripts of letters, photographs, and information on her grandparents’ lives.

Claudia has written a book about her grandmother’s service as a Nursing Sister. The volume, in the final stages of production, illustrates their tremendous dedication and hard work during the tragic yet exhilarating years of the First World War.
