A recent genealogical discovery is worthy of being documented as I found that a distant relative in WWI was awarded the rare Victoria Cross for gallantry and bravery. As we approach November 11th, and honour those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for love of country, his story is worth sharing as we discover one of the many “real” moral tragedies of war. LEST WE FORGET
Thanks again, Bill, for another very interesting, well-written and well-researched piece! While it is indeed a sad story, it nevertheless illustrates very vividly how the Canada in which we are fortunate to live in today was made possible by the sacrifices of those who lived before us.
