n.Note: The term dates from more than four decades ago. «By odd coincidence, I met my cousin Harry in the C. N. E. Horse Palace, where Ontario troops were first assembled. But we were on different sides, so to speak. I was “Active Service,” he was a “Zombie” a derogatory term applied to those who signed only to serve in Canada.» —“The adventures of a Muskoka mother” by Lloyd Dennis Packet & Times (Orillia, Ontario, Canada) July 29, 2008.
