On July 1, 1916, Herbert became the first commanding officer of the 62nd Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force.

Although he served overseas with the Canadian forces, he spent much of his time in England dealing with administrative and legal matters, so he did not take part in battlefield action.

In 1918, the Canadian government appointed Herbert to be the head of a court of inquiry to investigate complaints by returned soldiers that the conditions on their ship were unsatisfactory. Some soldiers objected that Herbert was not an appropriate person to do this job, because he had not seen active service during the war. The government proceeded with Herbert as the head of the inquiry.

After the war, Herbert carried on his law practice in Vancouver. He died in Vancouver on December 2, 1937.

Caroline died in Victoria, British Columbia on December 7, 1958.

Marion Macleay (wife of Gordon Graham Hulme)

Marion Annie Hulme, death notice, Published in The Times Colonist from Mar. 26 to Mar. 29, 2005; http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/timescolonist/obituary.aspx?n=marion-annie-hulme&pid=3338366: “Hulme, Marion Annie (nee MacLeay) Passed away suddenly, peacefully at home, in the early hours of a golden spring morning March 22, 2005. Mom was born in Yorkton, Sask. on a cold winter’s day Jan 16, 1915, daughter of John and Annie MacLeay (McLeod), and the first little girl in a family of 6 brothers, sons of Annie & Colin MacLeay Donald, Duncan, Colin (Frank), Norman, Allan & Edward, who have all predeceased her. Mom tragically lost her own Mama, Annie, when she was only 8 years old. Mom will always be deeply cherished and missed by her children, Lesley (Steven) Ames and Diane Taylor and by her precious granddaughters Caroline, Christina and Julie Anne. She leaves many loved cousins, nieces, and nephews in the MacLeay and MacLeod clans, and their families. Marion treasured her MacLeod and MacLeay family roots, which have been so carefully researched by Rod MacLeod of Calgary. She was ever so proud of her Scottish Hebridean Isle of Lewis Gaelic heritage. On Aug 22, 1942, Mom married our Dad, Gordon, a dashing RCAF Flying Instructor. After WWII, they came to BC, where she was to embark upon a lifetime of being the best homemaker and Mom to her family, and caring for her own dear Papa. Her beloved Gordon passed away so young (54), in 1966, and she resourcefully carried on running his Real Estate insurance business in Sidney, Gordon Hulme Ltd., until her retirement at age 72. Mom had always excelled at office organization, court reporting, being an RCMP steno, a legal secretary, and newspaper proofreading. Mom continued to read every line in the papers, clipping and filing the good stuff. She had terrific files of jokes & puzzles. She loved to keep track of local history. She amazed us with her stories of her younger years in Saskatchewan, her “Yorkton Yarns”, organizing many Yorkton Picnic Reunions in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Marion was a loyal member of the Monarchist League of Canada. She enjoyed so many happy times with her wide circle of friends, sharing laughter, chats, trips, garage sales, dinners, and tea. Simon and Pilot, her special cats, were her beloved and comforting companions. Mom found joy in the natural beauties of our Saanich Peninsula and passed this deep appreciation of nature onto her family. “Oh, it’s a wonderful world!” she would exclaim. She greeted each day with joy and enthusiasm, her favourite expression being, “Well, what’s on the agenda today? Anything exciting?” Even in her 91st year, she was ready to go for an adventure at the drop of a hat. She was incredulous that she had reached the milestone of 90 years. “Oh, I can’t be 90! 1 don’t feel THAT OLD I” The family is having a private service this Easter weekend, and a Celebration of Marion’s life will be held in late April or early May, 2005. We will announce the date later for you. If you wish, donations in Mom’s memory may be made to Mount Newton Center, 2158 Mt.
