His last country of permanent residence was Canada. Also, Mary Scott, 55, housewife. Their destination was Alpine Villa, Wormit, Dundee, Scotland.

The Canadian Great War Project had his date of death as 3 September 1953 but the card index has 1957 and the entry was corrected. Died at Sunnybrook, Hospital. Next of kin Mrs Mary Scott, Apt 104, 2603 Bathurst St, Toronto, Ontario. That address suggests that Mary moved back to Toronto, perhaps when widowed.
