Notes
Born April 5, 1896 in Birmingham, England, Harold Dudley immigrated with his family to southern Ontario in 1906. From that time until Harold enlisted in the army, the family lived in various communities including Washington (Oxford County), New Toronto (later part of Etobicoke), and Berlin (later Kitchener). As a young man, Harold worked as a teamster. It was in September 1914, while serving with the 24th Regiment Grey's Horse militia that Harold enlisted. He joined the Canadian Infantry, Western Ontario Regiment, 1st Battalion. At this time, Harold was living on Woodside Avenue, Berlin with his parents, John Charles (who was employed at Lang Tannery, Berlin) and Mary Davies and brothers Charles, Walter, and Thomas Frank. It was on August 9, 1918, during the Battle of Amiens, that Harold was killed. He died while on transport duty during military operations in the vicinity of Beaufort, killed by a bomb dropped from a plane. He is buried at the Cerisy-Gailly Military Cemetery, France.
