John Frederick "Jack" Hickman

Gunner Hickman was inadvertently killed by a stray bullet during the Kinmel Park Camp Riot (called "The Kinmel Park Mutiny") of 4/5 March 1919, which took place in Rhyl, Denbighshire, Wales. Five Canadian soldiers lost their lives during this riot.
Gunner Hickman was the only soldier whose remains were returned to Canada for interment.

From novelist/journalist Noel Barber’s 1975 book, ‘Gallant Protestors’:-
“The mutineers were our own men, stuck in the mud of North Wales, waiting impatiently to get back to Canada – four months after the end of the war. The 15,000 Canadian troops that concentrated at Kinmel didn’t know about the strikes that held up the fuelling ships and which had caused food shortages. The men were on half rations, there was no coal for the stove in the cold grey huts, and they hadn’t been paid for over a month. Forty-two had slept in a hut meant for thirty, so they each took turns sleeping on the floor, with one blanket each.”

Military Service-
Service Number: 326914
Age: 21
Force: Army
Unit: Canadian Field Artillery

Still a student, he enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force on 12 April 1916 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

Son of John Howard and Theresa (Hay) Hickman of Dorchester, New Brunswick.

Gunner John Hickman is commemorated on Page 535 of Canada's First World War Book of Remembrance.
