Roll of Honour

We regret to record the death which took place in action on 23 June of Private Joseph Hernot of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. This loyal soldier, who was 24, was the only son of Mr & Mrs Hernot of St Lawrence and left for the land of the Maple some 4 years ago. He joined up at the call of the Motherland and has now been called upon to make the supreme sacrifice. We tender the bereaved parents our sincere sympathy.
