South West Qubec

Veterans of World War 1
This is a work in progress

This is a an attempt to document the soldiers from South-West Quebec that participated in the Great War (1914-1919). The area is roughly defined as the area covered by the Chateauguay Valley Regional School, including the areas around Ormstown, Huntingdon, Howick, Hemmingford and Valleyfield. The names of the men that appear on this list were compiled from the war memorials Huntingdon, Ormstown, Riverfield and Valleyfield, names published in the Huntingdon Gleaner, and studies of attestation papers.

South West Quebec

If you know of any veterans of either World War, or have any other information on anyone on this list, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Note: you can see some letters from some of these soldiers here, and other regional articles culled from the Huntingdon Gleaner here. Stastical interpretation of the information entered for these men can be seen here.
