    Notes 
    • Family Biographical Information:

      Original attestation papers site James Nickle (Senior or I) Next of Kin as Mary Dorough Nickel, James' mother. James' wife, Julia Sullivan Nickel had only passed away on 4 May 1914 - James enlisted 19 Oct 1914 in Montreal.
      Later records confirm his childern were placed in St. Patrick's Orphanage as early as 15 October 1914. Payments were made to the Superintendant as the Guardian of three girls, estimated the notation was made in May 1917 when the children were ages 12 (Estimate birth 1905, corresponding with Julia Jane Nickel in 1904), 10 (Estimated birth 1907, corresponding wth Irene Margaret in 1906) and 5 (Estimated birth 1912, corresponding with Agnes Veronica in 1911) as well as a 7 year old boy (Estimated birth 1910, corresponding with Thomas Lesly in 1909).
      Later his eldest daughter, Mary 'Mamie' Nickel is in charge of his financial accounts.

      St. Patrick's Catholic Orphanage was located on Dorchester Street, in Montreal, Quebec.

      Trooper James Nickle (Junior or II) enlisted in the First World War on 3 Nov 1914 in Montreal, Quebec.
      Both James Nickle I and II serviced with the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps, No. 1 Veterinary Hospital.

      Lance Corporal Nickel was originally discharged in 1917 with Bronchitis, although there are notes that suggest he suffered from bouts of Hysteria in 1916. Upon further examination of his record, it appears he began drinking and having issues in completing his duty in 1915, but in 1916 he suffered repeated offenses with disturbances and drinking, and medical issues involving his bronchitis.
      It became clear upon further research that on 14 Jun 1916, Lance Corporal Nickel lost his son, Trooper James Nickel in Belgium between the dates of 11-14 June 1916. James II was reported Wounded and Missing, and later declared deceased on or since the above dates.

      James I was admitted to Hospital again in April 1917 and then discharged. He enlisted a second time in June of 1918 and served again until he was discharged in December of 1918, although War Service Gratuity was paid until 22 April 1919 so it is unclear exactly when he returned to his family.
      There is at least one page of James I military records in the file of James II.

      Irene Margaret 'Maggie' Nickle died in 1918.
