Charles Edward Anstie World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Charles Edward Anstie of the London, Ontario Ansties, who signed up for service with the 72nd Overseas Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force very early in the war and then in the trenches of the Somme in November 1916 received a “serious gunshot wound to the head” only two days after he was wounded by a “ fragment of shrapnel after his helmet was knocked off”.

Anybody who has information they would like to add to this biography please contact us at

Anybody who has researched their Anstey ancestors’ wartime heroics and wishes for their findings to be uploaded to the Anstey story project website, feel free to contact us.
