Notes
Lieutenant Robert Gordon Elliott enlisted on November 4, 1914, at the age of 26. At the time of his enlistment, he had already spent five years with the 29th Battalion in the Canadian Militia, so the military was not new to him. He rose through the ranks and earned a Military Cross as part of his service in the war. Gordon (as he was known) was born on December 28, 1889 to father Robert Elliott and mother Julia McQueen. He was the only boy in the family of five children. When the war began, he was working as a manufacturer. After the war, Gordon returned to Galt where he married his wife, Mabel Isabel Wilson in the Presbyterian Church on November 26, 1920. At the time of his marriage, Gordon was listed as a soap manufacturer. Gordon died on August 19, 1969 at the age of 79. He is buried in Mount View Cemetery in Cambridge.
