Etc. -- Samuel Bannister Killed in Action, 1917
Introduction | Source Documents | Other Sources | Photocopies | Back
The following transcript is of a page 1 article in the 7 Jun 1917 
issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.


797617 Private Bannister was one of the sons of 
Mr. Robert Bannister who formerly lived close to Teeterville, but who now resides in Port Dover. 

The sons were in business in the West. 
Samuel came home and enlisted with the 133rd, 
leaving his western interests to his two brothers. 
Now word comes that he will not return.

His name has to be added to the ever-lengthening 
roll of Norfolk's sons who have given their lives to 
the great cause. "Killed in Action" the only epitaph permitted by the war authorities, tells the story.
