World War I Veterans of Guysborough County, Nova Scotia

A retired Social Studies teacher in Nova Scotia has started collecting the personal history of people from Guysborough County, Nova Scotia who were in World War One.

He says that his "goal is to compile a biographical sketch of each veteran who was born and/or lived in Guysborough County"

He has had the blog since November,2011, and so far he has posted "Pte. Arthur Ellsworth Armsworthy: A Wounded Soldier's Story", "A Soldier's Wage", and "Pte. Robert Burns: KIA November 25, 1915."

He says he hopes to collect this material so that it will be available to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the war from 2014 to 2018.

The blog is at, and if have any information, please contact him
