Born in 1858, Charles Alexander Wake was a career soldier, joining the York and Lancaster Regiment in 1876 at the age of 18. He received the Distinguished Conduct Medal from Queen Victoria for bravery during the Battle of El Teb in Egypt in 1884 for defending himself single-handedly against 4 Soudanese attackers. He retired from the British Army with 33 years service and immigrated to Canada in 1910. Here he became a member of the Governor General's Foot Guard and enlisted with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry in August 1914. He was commissioned as a Lieutenant and appointed the first Regimental Quartermaster. He was Struck Off Strength 24 March 1915 and then joined the 133 Battalion, serving with that Regiment as a Captain from 1916 to 1918. Following the First War he was appointed Quartermaster in the Canadian Army Medical Corps at Spadina Hospital, College Hospital and General Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. In January 1920 he was discharged as medically unfit at the age of 62. He passed away 19 March 1941 at the age of 83.
