Notes
Private John Brandon (Regimental/Service #123049), enlisted on September 1, 1915 in London, ON with the 70th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force. He was born on February 4, 1893 in Aston Clinton, Buckinghamshire, England. At the time of his enlistment he was not married and his occupation was a farmer. He listed his next of kin as Annie Brandon (Mother) of Aston Clinton, England. He also had a sister, Mrs. F. Hill of Orme House, 35 Strode Road Willisden Green, London NW. He listed his religion as Church of England. His unit sailed from Halifax on the SS Lapland on April 26, 1916 and arrived in England on May 3, 1916. His wartime records indicate that he was transferred to the 5th Canadian Mounted Rifles Battalion (Quebec Regiment) upon his arrival in France on June 7, 1916. John was killed in action at the Battle of Courcelette on September 15, 1916. He was 23 years of age. His sacrifice is honoured at the Vimy Memorial in France. His soldier card indicated that his next of kin was Mrs. David Harriot of Ayr. Mrs. Harriot is listed as next of kin for Private Frederick Bratten (see identifier WW1_B_226). However, Mrs. Harriot is not recorded as next of kin in John Brandon's service file. The regimental/service number for John Brandon and Frederick Bratten are sequential and both enlisted in London on the same day (September 1, 1915).
