Armistice (Remembrance) Day 2000
A group that was part of a pipe band from the local community of Leith in Edinburgh and three young men from the Boys' Brigade Company went to Belgium and took part in the 2000 commemorations at the Menin Gate. Jim Armstrong of Edinburgh gave them a small posy of poppies to lay at the memorial with a note "James Dumma your name is remembered by two family historians Shirley Dumma (Canada) and Jim Armstrong (Scotland)".
Jim Armstrong writes:
"I know they found it a very moving trip and the two youngest are still very tearful when discussing where the band had to play. I think it was the sheer number of tombstones that did it and when they saw the number of names with known graves it was just too much. The youngest was proud to say it was he who first spotted the name James Dumma."

Notes for Thomas Dumma:|
Thomas Dumma's family was living in Scotland, in the Cheviot Hills when he was born. The nearest town was in England. Therefore, his birth was registered in the Registration District of Alnwick. The "Certified Copy of an Entry of Birth" states the birth was in the Sub-district of Warkworth in the County of Northumberland. Certificate # BB783998 issued April 16, 1958.
The family lived at Oxam Rowe (Oxhamrow), Scotland which was just outside of Jedburgh (Jedbouragh) . His father, John, was the overseer of a farming estate owned by a Mr. Borthwick. It was said that the family had been sending money to John's brother in Canada as they were planning to pool their money to buy a farm in Canada. The family sailed from Liverpool on the ship, Victoria, arriving in Quebec June 20, 1920. Nan did not sail with the rest of the family but came to Canada at a later date. Tom's father died of cancer 4 months after arriving in Canada (He had already had 2 operations for cancer in Scotland).
Tom went looking for work and found a job at Massey Harris Co. in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. He must have been transferred to Winnipeg because he leased a house in Winnipeg and sent for his Mother and family. His Mother lifted a piece of wallpaper and said they were not living there because it was infested with bugs. As Tom was only 17 years old at the time, they were able to get out of the lease. They rented another house. Shortly after, his Mother died.
