TORONTO — Dwight Wilson, one of the last two Canadian veterans of World War I, died Wednesday in Toronto, officials said. He was 106.
Wilson's death leaves one known surviving Canadian veteran of the war -- 106-year-old John Babcock of Spokane, Wash.
Born Feb. 26, 1901, in Vienna, Ontario, Wilson enlisted in 1916 at age 15 after telling the army he was older. When he arrived in England, his true age was discovered and he was sent back to Canada without entering combat.
