Biography

After Gordon Dailley had graduated from the University of Manitoba, he went from Winnipeg to Montréal on a cattle train and then worked his way onto a cattle boat to England, where he was appointed a representative of the Caufman Rubber Co., in 1932. Dailley was one of the founders of the Grosvenor House Canadians who won the English championship in the year they were formed. He represented Great Britain at the 1934 World and European championships and played in defense in all seven matches at the 1936 Olympic Games. He was subsequently a member of the British team that won the European Championships in 1937 and 1938. After helping to form the Grosvenor House Canadians, Dailley joined Wembley Lions, and he also played for Wembley Canadians and Wembley Monarchs. Following a tour of duty with the Canadian forces in Europe during World War II, Dailley served with the United Nations peacekeeping force in Korea. He was promoted to Colonel in 1955 and posted to Yugoslovia as Canada’s military attaché. After his retirement from the Army in 1964, Colonel Dailley played a prominent role in civic affairs in Ontario and founded the first major Wild Life Park in Canada, which is still operated as a successful business by his son.
