Meet Heroes' Deaths
These brave boys -- Private Frank
Hill, Private Walter Cade, and Private Lloyd B. Lewis -- all
"D" Company of the 133rd Battalion, and all belonging in
Teeterville, have been killed in action.
Hill and Lewis were natives of
Windham. Cade, an Englishman, had lived [in Teeterville] long
enough to look upon it as home.
Lewis had gone west, but came
back to Norfolk to enlist with his chums in the county unit.
While the 133rd trained here they
lived together with Mrs. Fred Marr, Colborne Street north.
They went to England together, stayed there together;
they crossed to France to the some battalion, and Somewhere there
they found soldier's graves within a few days of one another.
following is a partial transcription of the Teeterville column on page
5 of the 13 Sep 1917 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.
Word was received last
week that three of the boys from this village, Frank Hill, Walter
Cade and Lloyd Lewis, had paid the supreme sacrifice. A memorial
service was held in the church of Sunday evening, conducted by our
pastor, Rev. Mr. Voaden, assisted by Rev. Mr. Russ.
