George Yuile was born on October 25, 1901, and began to serve king and country at the young age of fourteen. He was one of those who misrepresented his age and escaped the sharp eyes of recruitment officers. He fought with the 204 Battalion in France and was no more than seventeen years old when the war ended.

Little else is known of Constable Yuile’s life after the Great War and prior to his career with the OPP other than a special recommendation, as at some point he served as the high county constable for Peel Police.

Constable Yuile began his career with the OPP when he was appointed on November 22, 1933. He served at the Beaverton and Oshawa detachments. He later became an inspector and was transferred to Brampton. He received commendations for cases as diverse as armed robbery, murder, explosives and cattle rustling.

On June 7, 1948, the officer was heading north on Jane Street when his unmarked car struck an abutment on the Russell Avenue Bridge. He suffered a broken jaw, lost nine teeth and sustained severe internal injuries.

Constable Yuile was conscious when he arrived at Toronto Western Hospital and was conversing with staff and colleagues. However, he had what doctors called mental blackout and could not recall any of aspect of the accident. PC Yuile succumbed to his injuries four days later.

George Yuile was forty-six years old when he passed away and was survived by his wife.
