James Hiram Mondy (1897-1917)
Bill Castle sent us a couple of images that he found of James Hiram Mondy. Bill says, "I really do not have any more information than you already seem to have concerning Hiram's origination and subsequent demise at the runup to the battle of Vimy in 1917. I am forwarding to you some information I received today from Sidney J. Clark, in Wales, UK.
"I originally found the reference to your article in Vol. 9, Issu. 6, WWI Memories today through a Google search. What a useful tool! I will enjoy perusing your online stories as I have subscribed today, number 312. Thanks for all you are doing to keep this information alive."
Bill sent us James Hiram Mondy's Attestation papers [front and back, as seen in these two images].
