W. A. Stevens’ Large Photo Album

Larger album of two from William Arnott Stevens and his wife Betty.

St. Catharines, Ontario.

He served in the 19th St. Catharines Regiment, later the 19th Lincoln Regiment and the Lincoln and Welland Regiment.  

He was commissioned about 1907 and remained with the regiment until about 1957. During World War I he was a musketry Officer with the 2nd Canadian Division at Niagara-on-the-Lake, and was a machine-gun instructor attached to the Royal Flying Corps in Hamilton and Beamsville Ontario, and Texas. He was not sent overseas due to a pre-war injury [reportedly a broken back from a pre-war car accident]
