History / Biographical
The Soldiers' Aid Commission was established by the Province of Ontario through Order-in-Council in 1915 to provide emergency financial assistance to Ontario veterans and/or dependents of the First World War. The Soldiers' Aid Commission Act of 1916 subsequently established a series of local boards under the administration of the Department of the Attorney General to review applications and disburse funds. The County of Elgin administered one of these local boards.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of alphabetical registers listing the name, rank, address, place of enlistment, battalion, areas of service, wounds and date of return to Canada. These registers were compiled for the purposes of determining eligibility for assistance for returning soldiers from the First World War. Details of amounts received or particulars of individual applications are not included in these registers. Residents of both the County of Elgin and the City of St. Thomas are listed. An alphabetical index exists at the front of each register.

Five views of the interior of the banquet hall at the Engineers Building, 561 Talbot Street, St. Thomas, decorated for an event described on the photographer's storage envelope as a "Machinists' Dance". The Engineers Building (later known as Masonic Hall) was commissioned by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers (BOLE), designed by prominent St. Thomas architect Neil Darrach, constructed 1908-1909, and officially opened on November 3, 1909. These photographs were probably taken during the First World War, as decorations include flags of nations allied with Great Britain and Canada against Germany, including Japan (note the inclusion of the Ensign of the Imperial Japanese Navy amongst the decoration flags). Image 7402c may show the stylized capital letter O from a display of the BOLE acronym.

Studio portrait of four unidentified First World War soldiers.

According to http://www.canadiansoldiers.com/ranks/staffsergeant.htm, these insignia were used in the Canadian Army from 1900 to May, 1915.
The name "Bloye" is written on the storage envelope. The only person with the surname Bloye in Library and Archives Canada's database of First World War soldiers's attestation papers and service files is Frederick Arthur Bloye, 320851, enlisted at Toronto, Ontario, January 27, 1916: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=49539.
The name "Bloye" on the storage envelope for this negative may be a misspelling for "Boyle", and if so, one of the soldiers shown may be John Alexander Boyle, 189648, enlisted at St. Thomas, Ontario, December 13, 1915, assigned to the 91st Battalion, and listed among the memebers of the 91st Battalion who deployed from St. Thomas on June 25, 1916: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/item.aspx?IdNumber=59199.

Scope and Content
Studio portrait of an unidentified First World War soldier with the surname Powless and his wife and child. The woman shown here also appears in a Scott Studio portrait of "Georgie Powless" and family (146_6203). Based on a review of digitized attestation papers and service files at Library and Archives Canada, it is most likely that the soldier shown is Fredrick Powless, 802776; born on the Oneida Settlement, Delaware Township, May 24, 1886; enlisted at Muncey, Ontario, January 19, 1916, and assigned to the 135th Battalion, C.E.F.; next of kin reported as his wife, Julia Powless, residing in Southwold Township, Ontario.
