At the start of WWII, Aubrey and his twin brother Larry volunteered for service in the Royal Canadian Navy, both saw service in the Battle of the Atlantic, and both achieved the rank of Chief Petty Officer (now Chief Warrant Officer). When the war ended, Aubrey married the love of his life, Edna Gilmour (daughter of Robert Gilmour and Ella Smith) and moved to Ottawa. They raised their six children in Aylmer, Quebec. Aubrey worked over 30 years in the civil service, retiring from the International Joint Commission in 1982.
