Three Teeterville Chums 
Meet Heroes' Deaths

These brave boys -- Private Frank Hill, Private Walter Cade, and Private Lloyd B. Lewis -- all members of 
"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.

The 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.
