Captain Bradford Burton Bishop enlisted in the Canadian Army Service Corps in September 1914 and was embarked for the U.K. later
that month. Subsequently commissioned, he entered the French Theatre of War in January 1915, and had risen to the rank of Captain by the
time of his secondment to the Royal Flying Corps in November 1917. This latter posting ended just six weeks later, Bishop being admitted to hospital suffering from stress and 'Flying sickness', and his return to the Front as a Balloon Officer in February 1918 quickly ended with his admission to No. 3 Casualty Clearing Station on the last day of
March - cause unknown. The unfortunate Bishop does not appear to have fully recovered from this latest run in with the Medics, still being classed as unfit for another three months in September 1918. He relinquished his Commission in 1919, having been detached from the R.A.F. in March of that year.
