Dickson, David M

The name of David M Dickson appeared in two editions of the Kenora Miner and News in August of 1914 as one of the recent volunteers for the war. A third article published in February of 1915 mistakenly contained his name as having arrived in France with the first contingent. However a David M Dickson was rejected from service at Valcartier on 27 August 1914 as medically unfit (“right side ruptured”). The first page of his attestation was missing from his file but from the second page it indicated that he was just over 30 years of age, stood 5 feet 6 inches tall, had dark hair and blue eyes, and Presbyterian. Other details are unknown.
