And from the same source...


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 Battalion.

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.
