Taps for Alfred
A beloved old soldier dies, leaving mysteries about his past unsolved, Peter CHENEY writes
By Peter CHENEY, Page M3
To some, Alfred FINLEY was a tragic icon of the Second World War, a man who had risked his life for his country only to end his days in grinding poverty, living in a Toronto garage with no running water.
Central Casting could not have found a more poignantly photogenic symbol of war than Mr. FINLEY, with his dignified face and rheumy blue eyes -- when Remembrance Day rolled around, he was photographed and filmed again and again in his Black Watch uniform, tears running down his cheeks as he recalled past battles and fallen Friends.
But to others, he was a fraud, with a military history that didn't add up and a uniform that looked like it had been pieced together as a costume by a man who wanted the limelight.
After The Globe and Mail featured him in a story two years ago, recounting an amazing military history including battles at Anzio and Tobruk and wading ashore on D-Day, veterans suggested that Mr. FINLEY was not all that he claimed to be -- the Black Watch regiment, they pointed out, didn't participate in many of the battles that Mr. FINLEY recounted. Others said his medals and insignia were not consistent. A Black Watch Association member said he could not have done all the things he said he did -- or seemed to believe that he had.
But confronted by the discrepancies, Mr. FINLEY stood by his version: "That's how I remember it," he said.
This week, the final chapter in Mr. FINLEY's strangely compelling story played out in a Brampton cemetery when he was lowered into the earth in a simple wooden casket, dressed in his disputed uniform and surrounded by people who loved him, whether his story was real or invented -- or a combination of both.
"He wasn't just a soldier to me," said Barbara HALE- FRENSCH, a teacher who befriended Mr. FINLEY more than a decade ago and considered him the "adopted grandfather" to her children. "He was a wonderful old man with a kind heart who gave away everything he had to others."
By the time of his death at the age of 86, due to complications from cancer, Mr. FINLEY had become a local character in Toronto's High Park neighbourhood, where he spent his days drinking coffee in the local McDonald's, talking to residents and cruising in his electric scooter. (He lost one of his legs due to infection after the war.)
As the 2004 Globe story recounted, he lived in abject poverty, paying $600 of his $1,000 veteran's pension to landlord Maryann SCHENBRI, who rented him space in her garage.
He was a fixture at veterans' events, rigging himself up in his Black Watch uniform and medals for the Canadian National Exhibition Warriors' Day Parade every August, and for Remembrance Day ceremonies at Old City Hall in November. He appeared in newspapers and television newscasts more than half a dozen times. "An Old Vet Remembers," one headline read.
In 1996, a photograph of Mr. FINLEY was nominated for a National Newspaper Award. His face still appears on a National Defence website.
Mr. FINLEY's passing has not made his record available -- Department of National Defence spokesmen said military records remain sealed for 20 years after death, although military officials have confirmed that an Alfred FINLEY served overseas during the Second World War.
But those who knew him best say that questions about his record should not define him.
"People knew that at least part of the story was made up," says Sherry LOW/LOWE/LOUGH- BERNIE, a High Park Pilates instructor who saw Mr. FINLEY almost every day since 2004. "People kept saying that he wasn't for real. I said, Who cares? He volunteered for his country, and he wasn't hurting anyone. It really isn't about the details of his military record. It's about an old soldier who lived in a garage without running water. Nobody should have to live the way he did."
Ms. HALE- FRENSCH, who delivered the eulogy at Mr. FINLEY's funeral, wept as she recalled how the old soldier would come to Runnymede School every morning to listen to her band rehearse, and run errands for her on his scooter. "What's important is that he loved people, and that people loved him," she said. "It's not about the details of what he really did."
Even so, many noticed that Mr. FINLEY's war stories grew and shifted over the years, often accumulating pathos and detail. He told one friend about going ashore at Normandy, but later said that he had been in Berlin on the same date. He told Ms. HALE- FRENSCH about a dramatic rescue in North Africa, where he pulled five British soldiers out of a tank that had been hit by German fire just moments before it exploded. Soon after, he told her, he had been summoned by Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, who had awarded him a medal.
Gail CATNEY, an executive assistant who met Mr. FINLEY on the streets of High Park in the early 1990s, said she had been struck by his generosity. Though he was poor, he refused handouts, and often brought gifts for her, she said, recalling the time he brought her a Delft vase. "My heart went out to him," she said. "He was alone, and he had nothing."
Ms. CATNEY was one of a handful of mourners who attended Mr. FINLEY's burial this week. He never married, and had no close family in Toronto. His service was paid for by the Last Post fund, which is funded by Veterans Affairs and private donations.
Mr. FINLEY was dressed in his Black Watch uniform and cap, and a piper played Amazing Grace as his flag-draped casket was lifted by the pallbearers. The military was represented by Master Corporal Victoria LOGAN- WHITE/WHYTE, a young cadet with the 75th Toronto Scottish Regiment who had often accompanied Mr. FINLEY to veterans' events. "I knew him my whole life," she said.
Ms. CATNEY cried as she placed a red plastic poppy on Mr. FINLEY's casket before it was lowered into the grave. "Goodbye, Alfred," she said. "We love you."
Another friend of Mr. FINLEY's listened to the eulogy, then noted sadly that his possessions were sitting out on the street less than 24 hours after his death. "His mattress was at the curb, and everything he owned was in five garbage bags," she said.
Ms. SCHENBRI, his landlady, wouldn't talk about her former tenant this week, but once said that she saw nothing wrong with his living arrangements, despite the lack of plumbing and the fact that he had no privacy, since she walked through his room to get to her car.
"Please," she said. "He's like my father."
Ms. SCHENBRI did not attend Mr. FINLEY's funeral this week.

WATERMAN, Margaret Elizabeth (née SINCLAIR)
Margaret Elizabeth WATERMAN, born on 21 February 1928 in Sarnia, Ontario to Laughlin Howard SINCLAIR and his wife Marguerite, died in St. Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, Manitoba, on Monday, 27 February after a sudden and unexpected collapse on the evening of Saturday, 25 February. In May 2004, her physicians had diagnosed pulmonary fibrosis. Margaret was raised and educated in Ontario, graduated with B.A. with Honours in English in the University of Toronto, followed by a year at the Ontario College of Education. It was at Victoria College, Toronto, particularly in Annesley Hall where she resided for four years, that Margaret first developed her great gift of Friendship. Many of the greetings she received on her 78th birthday came from women she had first met sixty years before. Having taught at High Schools in Sault Ste. Marie and Newmarket, Ontario, Margaret married Anthony Michael Charles WATERMAN in Sarnia on 3 September 1955. She retired from teaching upon marriage, devoting the rest of her life to her duties as wife and mother in which she was exemplary, in volunteer work for church and community, in musical, literary and athletic recreations, and in maintaining a large correspondence with a continually expanding circle of Friends and relations in Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S.A. She and her husband lived in Montreal for some years after marriage, moving to Winnipeg for the first time in 1959. At various times thereafter they lived for short periods in Canberra, Australia; Oxford, Brighton and Cambridge, England; and Boston, Massachusetts. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in Winnipeg, surrounded by children and grandchildren, and by many old and dear Friends. Margaret was a faithful Christian and long-time parishioner of St Aidan's Church in River Heights, serving at various times as President of the Altar Guild, member of Vestry, delegate to Diocesan Synod, Sunday School teacher, and convener or coordinator of Meals-on-Wheels, the quilting group, Bible study groups, the roster of lay liturgical readers; and many other similar activities which many take for granted but without which nothing happens. In the last week of her life she formally resigned her remaining parochial duties because of increasing disability. In her work for the larger community she was active for many years in the Cancer Society annual campaign and the Huntington Society; as a Board member of the Winnipeg Philharmonic Choir, the Winnipeg Youth Orchestra and the Winnipeg Bach Festival; and as an active member of the University Women's Club of Winnipeg. She served on the Board and other committees of her club, worked diligently at those of its activities directed to public service and education, and initiated a letter-writing group for Amnesty International. In none of these good works did she ever seek recognition or the applause of others, being ever content to work humbly and usefully behind the scenes for the good of all. Margaret also enjoyed the recreational activities of her club, especially its literary and dramatic discussion groups. Having a great love of walking, and encouraged by her female Friends in Cambridge and Australia, she founded a hiking group in the club which still flourishes. Vigorous and athletic, she played tennis and golf, swam, snorkelled and sur fed in the Pacific, and took frequent walking holidays with her husband and children in the Canadian Rockies, Scotland, Costa Rica, the U.S.A. and New South Wales. In her mid-seventies she climbed 3,000 feet from Lake Louise to the summit of Fairview. Margaret bore five children: Andrew, Margaret Anne who died in infancy, Michael, Caroline and Alice. In addition to her husband, four living children, children-in-law Kim, Ellen, Bradley BOYLE and Gavin FINNEY, and her grandchildren Nicholas, Elizabeth and Sophia Ciel, she is survived by her brother Tom SINCLAIR of Castleton, Ontario, her brother-in-law Peter WATERMAN of Bourne End, Buckinghamshire and by many cousins, nephews and nieces in Canada, Britain, Australasia and the U.S.A. She was admired by many and loved by all. The funeral will be at Saint John's Cathedral, 135 Anderson, Winnipeg, at 11.00 a.m. on Monday, 6 March, with burial in the Cathedral churchyard, followed by a reception in the Cathedral Hall. No flowers by request. Memorial donations may be made either to St Aidan's Anglican Church, 274 Campbell Street, Winnipeg R3N 1B5, or to the University Women's Club of Winnipeg, 54 West Gate, Winnipeg R3C 2E1.

HELBIG, Marian
Mom left the stage suddenly on Tuesday, October 31, 2006 in the middle of a brilliant set. She was a singer, model, mother, grandmother extraordinaire, and passionate friend who leaves a devastating hole in our lives. We will miss her sense of humour, her style, her beauty and grace, and most of all her incredible warmth and devotion to her family. Mom would want us to remember her long years of cottage freeloading, berry picking and freestyle swimming, globetrotting with kindred spirits, and many nights of jazz to which she brought her inimitable zest and insouciance. We also remember the talented dressmaker, fabulous cook, and hostess who made each legendary Christmas party a destination. We will terribly miss watching the Leafs, doing crosswords and wonderful conversation with this proud Canadian and protoenvironmentalist. She survived in the face of lupus for over 45 years, and taught us to aspire to her noble example. We'll make certain her memory stays alive and bright in her grandchildren's lives. Marian will be deeply missed by her children Karla RODGERS, Avril HELBIG (and spouse Mike HANSEN,) Jason HELBIG and wife Cathy) and grandchildren Michelle, Sadie, Wilder, Greer and Bridget. She is also mourned by her extended family William McCULLOCK, Loretta McCULLOCK, Valida RAHAL, Walter McCULLOCK, Willa LEJOUR, Christina FINNEY and their families. She was predeceased by her loving husband Herbert HELBIG. Visitation at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West (2 stoplights west of Yonge Street), on Sunday, November 5, 2006 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at St. Peter's Anglican Church, 188 Carlton Street (between Jarvis and Parliament Streets), on Monday, November 6, 2006 at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at Marian's residence after the service. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Marian Helbig Memorial Trust in support of an emerging Canadian jazz talent (www.marianhelbig.com). 'I'm walking on eggs, I'm walking on jelly legs…'
