Cpl. Ryder served with the Third Royal Canadian Garrison Artillery in the First World War. Prior to joining the Force he worked as a Customs Officer for the Preventive Service. Cpl. Ryder spent most of his service at the Fredericton Detachment in New Brunswick. He had a number of glowing tributes and commendations on his file that allude to his courageous acts and dangerous arrests. On September 2, 1942, Cpl.
