  3. 55062 A. SJT. H.R. PICKERING. 19 - CAN. INF. Acting Sergeant Harold Bestard Pickering. Harold was born on 31 January 1893 (RAF states 1897) at Toronto. Before WWI broke he was unmarried and a clerk. He served in the pre-war militia Queens Own Rifles. He will attest to the Canadian Expeditionary Force on 11 November 1914. He was now 55062 Private Harold Pickering of the 19th Battalion CEF. He will sail from Montreal on the SS Scandinavia on 13 May 1915 arriving in England on 22 May. The crossed the Channel to France on 14 September where the 19th Battalion will fight with the 4th Infantry Brigade of the 2nd Canadian Division. Harold’s medical card states that sometime between the end of June and 1 July 1916, before the Canadians moved from Belgium to Courcelette in France, he suffered from a contusion to his shoulder, shell shock and Neurasthenia (weakness). On 1 July he was at No. #4 Canadian Field Ambulance. Then on 9 July he was sent to the No. # 2 Divisional Rest Station in “Field.” On 17 July he is at No. # 15 Casualty Clearing Station at Mont des Cats from where, on 16 August, he transfers to the No. #25 Canadian Hospital at Hardelot. On 4 September he is moved to No. #1 Canadian Convalescent Depot at Boulogne and four days later to No. #5 Convalescent Depot at  Wimereux. On 4 October he is at the Base Depot at Wimereux before re-joining his unit “Field” on 15 October. On 29 December, although remaining in the 19th Battalion, due to his injuries he was placed in the Canadian Army Medical Corps “General.” This was the first step in Harold’s process to join the Royal Flying Corps. Yet it is quite a considerable time later, on 14 August 1918 that Harold is “Posted to CAMC Casualty Company Depot Candidate for Commission in Royal Air Force,” and “Taken on Strength from 1st Canadian Field Ambulance on Commission to Cadet Dispersal Depot Royal Air Force London.” On 31 August 1918 he is deemed “Fit as Pilot or Obs:.” He then moves on 3 September to the No.#8 Cadet Wing at West Sandling Camp, Shorncliffe. On 7 September he is appointed to Acting Sergeant. Since Harold was in the Army he did not have to go through the initial steps of training in the RAF. He will dive into the practical training relating to flight and aircraft. He will complete this the day before the ceasefire in France. On 10 November 1918 Harold will move to the No.# 6 School of Aeronautics at Elmdale Road Camp in Clifton, Bristol. The next we hear of Harold is on 27 December 1918 when he “ceases ofc ? to RAF.” Therefore although Harold likely completed most of his ground training to become a pilot or observer, the war ended before he could be sent to a Training Squadron to actually begin flying aircraft. Therefore he remained a Acting Sergeant as indicated on his War Medal issued by the Air Ministry. On return to Canada Harold arrived at the No. # 2 District Depot and underwent the “Medical Examination upon leaving the Service of an Officer fit for general service or a Soldier for duty.” It states that as of 16 January 1919 Harold was a “Cadet” and “Acting Sergeant.” On 5-6 March he underwent the medical examination of those leaving the service “who have no disability.” He was then discharged on 8 March 1919. His military record states that Harold died on 16 May 1925 at the age of 32. - GVF - $100
