He was authorized to raise the 51st Battalion of Edmonton in December 1914. In November 1915 the Battalion was the first unit to occupy the Prince of Wales Armoury in Edmonton. Sixteen of the commissioned officers had risen through the ranks of the 101st Fusiliers. Some were veterans of the Boer war. The 51st Battalion embarked for the European Front as part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF), leaving Edmonton for Halifax on April 1, 1916 and sailing on the SS Metagama. In Britain, the Battalion was posted to the 5th Division at Bramshott Camp. In June 1915 they were sent to France to reinforce the 1st Division. Parnham ended up in a group sent to reinforce the 15th Battalion and 48th Highlanders of Canada. He fought in the Battle of the Somme, where he was wounded, and later in the Battle of Amiens.

Picard, Joseph Henri

  • Personne

Joseph Henri Picard was born in 1857 in St. Jean de Math, Joliette Quebec. He moved to Alberta in 1884, choosing to settle in Edmonton in 1887 on the advice of Father Lacombe. Picard quickly adapted to life in Edmonton, and in 1889, Picard and his partner, fellow Quebecer Stanislas LaRue, opened a general store LaRue and Picard. They also began to sell real estate during the Edmonton land boom during the 1890s. Picard's early success allowed him to diversify his business interests; in 1907 Picard retired from LaRue and Picard and he turned his attention to real estate, coal, brewing, cement, and railways. In addition to his various business interests, Picard was also actively involved in municipal affairs, serving on city council intermittently between 1894 and 1916 and with the Edmonton Board of Trade. Picard was also the first president of the Edmonton Separate School Board as well as serving as trustee. Picard married Martine Voyer in 1903, and they had two sons Robert and Laurier. The Picard fortunes began to slide during the First World War, ultimately leading to considerable debts and financial ruin. Picard retired from business in 1924, and he died in May 1934.
