Harvey K. Bisset, one of four brothers from Liverpool, was in the United States when war broke out. He waited until August of 1918 to move to Canada to enlist. He caught the flu in training camp and it progressed into pneumonia, from which he perished merely ten days before the Armistice.
Returning to Liverpool in 2016 from New Zealand, partly to honor my grandfather.
Leslie A. Bisset was the eldest of six children of Fanny and James Bisset. He joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force in late 1914 and was blinded in battle. He was treated at St. Dunstan’s (now called Blind Veterans UK).
Kenneth Bisset was the youngest of four sons of Fanny and James Bisset. Kenneth was shot through the cheek in late 1916. He survived and remained in the military, suffering no further wounds. He went on to become an inventor and entrepreneur.
