JM was a member of the Royal Horse and Royal Field Artillery and he was stationed in France and Belgium in 1917 and 1918. He survived the war and presented his 2 artbooks to his daughter Adele. That is about all that is known. But whether caricature or faithful rendering, ink or watercolour, JM's sketchbooks contain a sizeable number of funny or poignant or solemn depictions of the great war. (inadvertently via)
Both sketchbooks have been digitized and are hosted by British Columbia's University of Victoria Special Collections website.
