Livingstone, Harry Montague: Service no. 53044


Digitized Service Record

This soldier was brought to my attention by a post several years ago from a family member from Australia. Since I am so early in my transcription of the war diaries (October 1915) and the diaries go on to 1919 it could be years before I happen upon any mention (if there is any) in the war diaries. As it happens this soldier has his entire service record scanned in the Archives so not only do we have his attestation papers but also his entire service record.


Service Record for Livingstone, Harry Montague

” Hi everyone Some time ago I put out a request for information on my grandfather, Montague Livingstone and his WW1 service. Thank you for the many replies. I found out from those replies that he had reinvented himself as Harry Montague Livingstone and became a captain in the Canadian Army. I have subsequently learned that he was the manager of the Beaver Theatre in Toronto for some periods in 1917 and after 1919. He was also possibly the manager there at other times but I haven’t confirmed this. I have also found out that his wife, Evelyn May Jones, married a William Gray after Harry’s death in 1922. Her address at the time of his death was 633 Pelissier St, Windsor Ontario. She was originally from Buffalo, Ontario and when she married William Gray she was of Essex County. Would love to hear from anyone researching Evelyn May Jones or William Gray or their families. Jill in Sydney, Australia”
