Harold Moubert was born in Ashton in Makerfield, Lancashire,England in 1878 to Harold and Marie Moubert and came to Canada somewhere between 1902 and 1905. His attestation papers state he had 3 years military experience with the Lancashire Fusiliers. I suspect he could have been in South Africa in the Boer campaign. Harold lived in Moose Jaw, Saskachewan prior to enlisting.
He was promoted to Corporal from private on January 1 1917. He was promoted to Sergeant from Corporal on July 23 1917. I believe his last posting in England was Witley before boarding the HMT "Cedric" in Liverpool. (Harold had a brother living in the Liverpool area.)
He was given a medical discharge in June of 1919 after being removed from active service in November of 1917 and taken to Bexhill. He died in Moose Jaw in 1926 at age 48.
