Dates of existence



Stanley Ball (regt. no. 133118) was born on October 12, 1891 and lived in Knowlton, Quebec where he worked as a machinist (N.B. His discharge papers list his profession as “florist”). He enlisted in Montreal on November 5, 1915 and was posted to the 73rd Battalion (Royal Highlanders of Canada) as a private. He arrived in England on April 9, 1916 and arrived in France on August 13, 1916. On November 19, 1916 during the Battle of the Somme, he received a gun-shot wound to the chest and left shoulder. He was returned to England and the 1st Quebec Reserve Depot in March 1917 after a stay in the No. 1 General Hospital in Étaples and the 2nd Southern General Hospital in Bristol. In Montreal, he was sent to the Royal Victoria Hospital for convalescence where the attending doctors noted that his gun-shot wound resulted in a “foreign body in apex of left lung” but that “there is no treatment that would be of any avail.” Moreover, his discharge papers describe him as having a “small foreign body” in the left elbow. He was deemed “3/5” incapacitated for a period of 6 months. He was discharged as medically unfit in December 1917 with 35% compensation for twelve months.
