First World War photo's and books by Jim McCallum

Photos of First World War Veterans always welcome!

In 2008, our chairman, Jim McCallum, compiled his first publication dealing with veterans of the First Great War, 1914-1918.  Titled “Age Shall Not Weary Them”, this book dealt with those killed in action from East Elgin – the townships of Malahide, Bayham, South Dorchester and the town of Aylmer.  Although copies of the book are still available for sale, the entire content has been placed on the Elgin OGS website.  Go to “Ancestor Indexes”, then “Military”.

Jim’s next project dealt with all those who served in, and survived, the First Great War from the above municipalities.  Published in a four-volume series arranged by surname, this material has also been placed on the Elgin OGS website.

Photographs were often difficult to obtain and any additional photographs are welcome and will be added to the website.  Photographs in a Jpeg format can be e-mailed directly to
