  • Agnew, John Martin

  • John Martin Agnew was born on 01 October 1890 in Prince William, New Brunswick. His parents were Laurence Agnew and Mary Ann Adams (nee Moore). He had a sister, Sadie (b. 1886), who married William Saunders and a half brother, Warren Adams.

    John enlisted with the CEF on 14 June 1917 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was single, living in Kenora, Ontario and working as a cook and lumberjack when he signed his papers. Upon his arrival in England on 27 May 1918 John was placed in the 18th Reserve Battalion. He went to France with the 52nd Battalion on the 04 September 1918. Less than a month later John was wounded when he sustained a gun shot wound to his right leg. He rejoined his unit on 18 October, but an episode of myalgia just six days later sent him back to hospital until 14 December 1918. In February 1919 John returned to England in preparation for his demobilization. He traveled back to Canada in March 1919. His discharge papers indicate he intended to reside in Fredericton, New Brunswick upon his return.

    Research has been unable to establish details of John Martin Agnew’s life after his service in WW1.
