Name of creator
Reginald J.G. Bateman was born on 12 October 1883 in County Kerry, Ireland. He received his early education at Royal School, Co. Fermanagh, and both his B.A. (1906) and MA. (1909) from Trinity College. Shortly after his graduation he emigrated to Canada and was hired as Professor of English at the University of Saskatchewan. He enlisted as a private in the 28th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF), in September 1914 and served in France. Recalled in 1916 to take command of the Saskatchewan Co. of the Western Universities Battalion and promoted to the rank of Major, Bateman [voluntarily] reverted to the rank of lieutenant to return to France in 1917, where he was wounded. He returned to France once more, as Captain of the 46th Battalion CEF. He was killed in action on 3 September 1918.
