James Alexander Millen was born in Wentworth County on 11 February 1882. He enlisted with the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force in December 1915. Prior to enlistment, Millen was a member of the 77th Regiment where he had served as Lieutenant for Company E from 1902 to 1909.

The fonds consists of ten letters written by Millen to his wife, Helen Ethel Millen. The letters outline the day-to-day activities Millen participated in. A letter written in July 1918 comments on the arrival of the "Yankee" troops. A letter written 6 September 1918 provides details of Millen's involvement with the battles along the Hindenburg Line on 2 and 3 September 1918.
