  • Notes 
    • Leslie signed up with the Canadian Exposition Force on 30 March, 1915, trained at Aldershot NS where he caught a "cold". He went to England for more training and then went to France with laryngitis, which was eventually diagnosed as being caused by TB. He was shuffled around various hospitals and repeatedly returned to duty. But, the TB took its toll, he was eventually declared as unfit, and was returned to Halifax NS. He died a few months afterward. Most service files are about 20 pages ... Leslie's are 85 pages long due to reports on his 17 hospitalizations in NS, England, and France. In reading through his file, one gets the impression he minimized the effects of his illness whenever he was able, and was always ready to return to duty.
