Look at his face.  He is so young.  

Garfield Edwin Page was born January 27, 1897 in Tryconnell, Ontario.  He was my great grand uncle; half brother of my great grandfather Alexander Hewson. He joined the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force on March 29th, 1916 at the age of 19. The rest of his life is still a mystery to me but I am searching for more information about him. He died August 10, 1968 and is buried at South Park Cemetery, St. Thomas, Ontario.
