Claude Andrew Davis


Davis, Claude Andrew, Milner, British Columbia, formerly Wynberg, South Africa. Occupation: Lineman. Military Service: Company Sergeant Major, Reg. No. 5084, Canadian Engineers, 1st Field Company Canadian Engineer, 1st Canadian Division, and 1st Bn. Canadian Engineers, Attestation Papers. Unlikely Diary Reference: “Davis and I had a walk to the Y.M.,” 26 April 1918. Pte. Claude Andrew Davis appears to have been a member of the 1st Field Company Canadian Engineer that amalgamated with the 107th Bn. on 28 May 1918, so he couldn’t have been the Davis that Jack’s war diary mentioned on April 26. No Davis appeared in the Nominal Roll of the 200th Bn., but there were two on the Nominal Roll of 107th Pioneers: 718781 Stanley Davis and 718486 Wellington Roy Davis. One of these is probably the Davis Jack to whom Jack made reference.
