    This was the marriage of Charles A Sherwood and Hannah Stonehouse in 1915. Charles Sherwood, CEF Regimental # 81791, enlisted at Winnipeg in December 1914 and suffered from a GSW to the head, left arm and back. The marriage was registered in Dartford, Kent in the June Quarter 1915. It took place not long after he was admitted to hospital in May 1915.
