Arthur James Vandusen was born c. 1889, son of Hugh & Eliza Vandusen (later of 152 Britannia Avenue, Hamilton, Ontario).

Private A.J. Vandusen died on 12 May 1918, aged 29, apparently as a result of wounds received that day, and was buried at Ligny-St. Flochel British Cemetery, Averdoingt (Grave Ref. I.B.16).  The War Diary has the following entry for 12 May which possibly relates to Pte. Vandusen: "4.00 pm Enemy put 40 to 50 4.1's in S.16.a. some being close to 'G' Battery.  Shelled DUBLIN and BATH Guns and put DUBLIN Gun out of action and wounded one other rank.  The Gun was replaced by a new Gun at the position by 1.00 p.m."  However, a list of casualties compiled at the end of May shows two other soldiers wounded on this day - Ptes.
