Those Who Came After The Original 500

Levi Paddick

Levi PADDICK Regt # 2558 (Donated by Chris Paddick)

Levi Paddick was born on 12th August 1898 at Robert's Arm, Newfoundland, the fourth of six children to James Paddock and Margaret "Maggie Wiseman.

At the outbreak of WW1 Levi is believed to have lied about his age and enlisted in the Royal Newfoundland Regiment as a runner where he saw action at the Broembeek in France and was duly wounded. The extent of his injuries is not known.

In 1918 Levi married Violet Winifred Charman at Surbiton, Surrey, England before returning to Newfoundland and working as a mill hand and raising seven children.

For his efforts during WW1 Levi was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. In July of 1921 Levi was also issued with a Kings Certificate.

Levi died at age 38 on the 19th April 1936 after contracting tuberculosis/meningitis. He is buried with his one month old son Willie in the Union Street Cemetery, Grand Falls, Newfoundland.
