Pte. Dan McIsaac and Friend

193rd Battalion (Nova Scotia Highlanders)

1916

A nice studio portrait photo of Pte. Dan McIsaac (left) and Dan's close friend, Pte. James Arthur "Red Jim" Taylor (right). The men have their full kit and appear ready to travel. It is not clear whether the picture was taken in Canada or England.

"Red Jim" Taylor, who was from Forks at St. Mary's, Guysborough County, was later transferred to the 85th Battalion (Nova Scotia Highlanders). He was severely wounded during the 85th's assault on Hill 145 of Vimy Ridge, and died of wounds the following day, April 10, 1917.
