Hon. Capt. Kenneth Dean Marlatt was born in Oakville, Ontario, in November 1888.

A manufacturer by trade when he signed up, Kenneth had previous active militia experience with the 9th Mississauga Horse.

Attesting into the 4th CMR, in Toronto, on December 3rd, 1914, Kenneth served with the regiment without incident.

Initially a Lieutenant, Kenneth was recorded as Honorary Captain and Quarter Master when he was struck off strength on March 5th, 1917. He subsequently became Major with the No. 2 District Depot, Canada.

It is evident that Kenneth Marlatt knew Pte. John Moulding, as the two were photographed together (left).

It is not known if the association was personal or, as suspected, Officer / Batman service related.

A fuller biography for Hon. Capt. Kenneth Marlatt will be provided in due course.
