GRV (955 DVR: H. KING. 2/RES:PK:CAN:A.S.C.). Naming is officially impressed. Cleaned, light contact, bruised, very fine. Accompanied by a CD containing fourteen pages with copies of his Index Cards, Attestation Paper, Service Records, Medical Records and Discharge Certificates. Footnote: Henry King was born on November 12, 1894 in Alva, Clackmannanshire, Scotland. He signed his Attestation Paper on April 8, 1915 with the 2nd Reserve Park, Canadian Army Service Corps, in Montreal, Quebec, naming his next-of-kin as his mother, Mrs. Margaret King of Glasgow, Scotland, stating that he had no previous military service, that he was not married and that his trade was that of Bank Clerk. He embarked Canada for England aboard the S.S. Scandinavian on May 13, 1915, and after four months in England, left for his unit in the field, arriving at LeHavre on September 16, 1915. At the beginning of the new year, he was attached to the Canadian Overseas Railway Construction Corps (CORCC) in the field on January 5, 1916, then returned to duty with the CASC on February 3rd. He was again transferred, this time to the Canadian Railway Construction Battalion from February 14 to July 12, returning to the CASC for ten days (July 13th to 23rd), then again transferred to the CORCC for the next three months (July 24th to October 15th). He spent his winter months with the CASC before being transferred to No. 268 Railway Company, Royal Engineers for a two week stint (March 28th to April 11th, 1917), then to the 2nd Army Purchase Board for two months (April 14th to June 10th), before rejoining the CASC from the Purchase Board. He was appointed Acting Lance Corporal on November 6, 1917, and later, Lance Corporal. King was awarded his Military Medal for "gallantry in action" that took place on November 12, 1917 and was cited in the London Gazette 30507 on February 1, 1918. The 2nd Canadian Reserve Park was re-designated 2nd Canadian Army Auxiliary Horse Company on May 27, 1918 and remained under this name for the duration of the war. Upon the ceasing of hostilities, he proceeded to England and was posted to the Canadian Army Service Corps Depot at Witley on April 1, 1919, before struck off strength of the Overseas Military Forces of Canada at London, on May 10, 1919, on proceeding to Canada. He was discharged upon demobilization on May 19, 1919, at Dispersal Station "F", Military District No. 4 in Montreal.
