Biographical history

Weldon Guy Morash was born 13 February 1896 in West Dover, Nova Scotia, the eldest of four siblings. After his father, Lawson Morash, was killed in a fishing accident in 1905, his mother moved from West Dover to Windsor Street in Halifax, where she remarried and had five more children. Weldon stayed in West Dover and continued to fish. He enlisted in the 63rd Regiment and sailed for England as part of the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force in the summer of 1918. He served at the front in both France and Belgium and returned to Halifax with the 85th Canadian Infantry Battalion (Nova Scotia Highlanders). After his return from the war he married Florence (Florie) Morash, and resumed fishing in West Dover, where he lived until his death on 20 July 1978.
