Philip Leo McBride (1889-1925), a railway brakeman and a gunner in the First World War, was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, the son of Patrick McBride (d.1910), who was an Irish immigrant, and Mary O'Neill. He was employed as a railway brakeman with the Canadian National Railway at the time of his enlistment on 21 October 1915. His enlistment had been delayed by his family's disapproval. He received military training on Partridge Island, off Saint John. He was a gunner with the 4th Canadian Siege Battery, 62nd Regiment serving in the front lines in France, including the battle of the Somme. After the war, Philip McBride returned to his position with the railway. In 1923, he was a yard foreman with the Canadian National Railway (CNR). He married Mary Delina Comeau on 30 June 1920. Philip McBride was Roman Catholic.
