Charles Clarence "Clare" LAKING, Veteran (1899-2005)
Canadian veteran of First World War learned hard work on the front lines
By Joe FRIESEN and David PYETTE, Monday, November 28, 2005, Page S11
Clare LAKING, a farm boy from Campbellville, Ontario, who never finished high school, volunteered for the Great War to spite his father and narrowly avoided being killed on his first trip to the front.
The first shell he saw landed 45 metres away. He started wondering what he had gotten himself into. A second shell came so close that he dropped to the ground in terror. Before he could get up, a third shell landed right in his trench, showering him with dirt and debris.
Mr. LAKING survived his first brush with death, and lived through many more in his two years as a signalman who repaired communication lines at the front.
Mr. LAKING died Saturday at the age of 106. There are now only four Canadian veterans of the First World War still living.
Charles Clarence LAKING, named for his father Charles, but known as Clare, was born on February 21, 1899, on a farm in Southern Ontario. He attended a one-room school five kilometres from his home, and grew up playing hockey on the flooded, frozen fields near the school.
In an interview a few years before his death, Mr. LAKING, who was always a keen joker despite his strict Methodist upbringing, remembered walking to school with his older brother Bob in a particularly harsh snowstorm. When they arrived, they were the only ones there.
"The storm was too severe for everybody else. We had our lunch with us, we were cold and hungry and we didn't want to start back home right away. So we filed the padlock off the door, went out to the woodshed, and got the fire going. We spent most of the day catching mice and putting them in the girls' pencil boxes. Most of the mice smothered before the next morning, but it was still quite a surprise for the girls."
After he finished elementary school, Mr. LAKING commuted by train to a business college in Hamilton for six months. At 16, he took a job in Campbellville with the Bank of Nova Scotia that paid $300 a year.
Two years later, in 1917, he hitched a ride to Guelph and joined the army.
"I went against my father's wishes. He was dead against war, and he was getting under my skin," Mr. LAKING said. "And it was in order -- as much as anything -- to shut him up that I enlisted.
"He as much as told me at the time that, 'If you enlist I'm through with you.' It was a hard decision. Nevertheless, I carried through and enlisted. And when I came back, everything was fine. Everything was forgiven."
Mr. LAKING was sent to England, where he trained as a Morse code operator before being sent to the front.
"In fact I could have had a nice soft job in England for the balance of the war, because they knew I had worked for a bank, and I was in the orderly room for a couple of months there. But I thought: 'I have come this far, let's go on.' "
The next two years were filled with adventure and sorrow, as many of the young Canadians he served with died in battle. But the best feeling came at war's end, as he travelled through liberated villages, and people lined the roads to wave and cheer.
He came home to Canada intending to move to Alberta, but ended up working in lumber yards. It was in the late 1920s that he began courting a legal secretary named Helen PATTERSON.
One night he was on his way to Helen's parents' house for a Saturday supper. He was wearing his best fedora, navy blue overcoat and white silk scarf.
"In those days they had iced toboggan slides in Riverdale Park. I met some boys there who persuaded me to come for a ride on the toboggan. At the bottom of the toboggan slide the light standards were surrounded by manure piles to guard against any accident.
"The toboggan headed right for the manure pile. I was lying on the bottom of the toboggan with the rest of the guys on top of me, so I couldn't get off. I rolled into the manure pile wearing my Sunday best. Then I had to visit Helen's parents."
Nevertheless, they were married in 1929, just before the stock market crash, and a year later their son Keith was born, followed by their daughter Sheila six years later.
In 1941, Mr. LAKING bought his own business, Danforth Wallboard, in Toronto's East End, and kept it for close to 25 years before selling in 1965.
Throughout his life he was an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and held season tickets until the age of 100. He was to have been honoured at a ceremony at the Air Canada Centre this month, but couldn't attend due to his failing health.
He was also an avid curler, who once scored an rare eight-ender, a feat of perfection when all eight of the team's rocks are closer to the centre circle than any of the opposition's.
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime feat, if you're lucky," he once said.
After retirement, he and Helen travelled the world together and spent time with their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Helen died in 1993, and Mr. LAKING moved into the veterans residence at Sunnybrook hospital in 2003. He was in good health until a few weeks before his death, and kept a driver's licence until the age of 102.
The four remaining Canadian veterans of the First World War are Lloyd CLEMETT, 105, who is also at Sunnybrook; John BABCOCK, 105, who lives in Spokane, Washington.; William PROCTOR, 106, now residing in Salmon Arm, British Columbia; and Dwight WILSON, 104, a resident of Oshawa, Ontario
