Biographical history

John Sherlock Gooch was an English soldier. He took part in the Boxer Rebellion in China and also served for a long time in India. Major Gooch moved to Kootenay Lake, Canada in 1912, but returned to England and the British Army at the onset of the first World War. He was invalided out of the Army in 1918, and returned home to Kootenay Lake.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of a handwritten bio of Gooch, plus a typed transcription and carbon (possibly by Daphne Fiske). Also included are photocopies of Gooch's handwritten journal comprised of "A 'free run' in the balloon 'Vivid'" [October 18th 1909, 31 l.]. This account was published in The Malahat Review No. 11, 1969; and "Protagonists", his account of moving the artillery battery, of which he was the commanding officer, from England to Salonica and through the campaign there until his discharge [Oct 1915- Dec 1918, 131 l.]
