SIMCOE SOLDIER KILLED
Reginald Frank Knight 
Meets Hero's Death 
in Foreign Battle Field

Reginald Frank Knight, who went overseas with the 20th Batt. as a drummer in the band more than a year ago, was killed in action on 25 April according to a telegram received by his young wife last Thursday, 
at the house of her father, Pte. James Deans, of the 
133rd Batt.

The young man's father is a bandsman with the 
38th Batt. and had seen Reginald three weeks previously. Another brother, Ernest, is a bandsman in the 133rd here, and living at home with his mother.

The Knights came here 10 years ago. Reginald was 21 years old. He leaves a widow and a two-year-old child.

"Reggie" Knight was well known to our people, an exemplary young man and a favorite with his acquaintances. His untimely death has called forth many expressions of sympathy.
