Private James Abbott, Service No. 528517 Born in Carlow Ireland, James later resided at the Coombe Home in Hespeler, Ontario. He was a 22 year old student in Strathroy when he enlisted with the Number 2 Field Artillery Depot on 19 Jan 1916 at London Ontario. His next of kin was shown as Mrs. Emily Shepherd, sister, 56 Scollard Street, Toronto, ON on his attestation paper. He served in the Canadian Army Medical Corps at the CAMC Hospital at Havre, France. There, he became ill and was invalided to England with appendicitis. He returned to Canada and was discharged on 15 May 1919. James died on 26 May 1922 at the Byron Sanitarium.
