Alexander Maki was living in Kenora, Ontario when he enlisted on 17 July 1916. According to his attestation paper he was single, born on 25 February 1880 in Wasa, Finland and he had served with the Finnish armed forces for three and a half years before immigrating to Canada. He was employed as a railroad labourer and next of kin was his sister Mary Maki in Wasa. He signed up in Kenora with the 141st (Bull Moose) Battalion and he was found fit for overseas service.
After being with his unit for just a month Alexander went absent without leave. He was discharged from service as a deserter on 13 September 1916.
At this time nothing further is known about Alexander.
