The reported deaths of Private J. S. Crerar and Private Harry Nethercott in France cast a wave of great sorrow over the whole village last week. They were both young men of noble character and as teacher and pupil in our high school were both highly esteemed by every one. 

The following is from a page 3 article in the 3 May 1917 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

J. Stewart Crerar, M.A., left the principalship of 
Port Rowan High School less than a year ago, 
along with one of his pupils, Harold Nethercott of Houghton. Today both lie in France, heroes in the 
fight on Vimy Ridge. They worked together in 
Port Rowan and on Vimy Ridge. 
They died together, April 9.
