Name of creator
John (Jack) Mitchell of 42 Florence St., Hamilton joined the Canadian Army in 1916 at the age of 26, but had previously served three years with the 91st Hamilton Battalion. He was part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in France until he was discharged in May, 1919. Jack was believed to have worked in supply and it is unclear how he came to be in possession of the map. It may have been to be used as a road map, to help him perform his duties.
