Joseph George Wayne was born in Derbyshire in January 1870. He served with the 8th Hussars during the Second Boer War, before emigrating to Canada as a farmer. Wayne settled in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and was commissioned in the 11th Battalion Canadian Infantry at Valcartier, Quebec in September 1914. He served on the Western Front, prior to transferring to Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, 16 May 1916.

Wayne subsequently transferred to the 8th Battalion Canadian Infantry, and died in October 1937.
