NORMAN J. McKENZIE
Word has been received that
Private MacKenzie [sic] was wounded in the head on the 8th
of August and died the same day.
In October 1913, when eighteen
years of age, he came from Glasgow to Mr. William Hunter of Port
Rowan, where he remained until he enlisted with the 133rd
He tried to don khaki in the fall
of 1914, but being under the regulation height was not accepted.
In Oct 1918, however, he became a soldier, prepared to sacrifice
all if necessary, for King and Country.
In his short stay in Canada he
made many friends and was held in the highest esteem by all, and
those who knew him best realize that they have lost a friend whom
it will be difficult to replace.
