Olympic Marathon 1912

Are there any Edinburgh Athletic historians that can help with this query?
As a professor at Ghent University (Belgium) I’m writing a book about Olympian athletes and Word War I.
One of the athletes is James (Jimmy) Duffy. He was fifth during the Olympic marathon in 1912. He was once a member of the Edinburgh Harriers but emigrated to Canada.
He was killed in action in 1915. I was wondering if you still have some information about him of his period at you club?
