Word has been received in Simcoe that George Pratt, previously reported "missing," was killed in action 
July 9.

Pte. Pratt enlisted at the first call for volunteers and went from Simcoe with the first detail under Sergt. Mac[Master]. He had been in France for eighteen months and in the thick of all the fighting in the Ypres Salient.

He was an English lad by birth, twenty years of age, one of a family of ten. His mother lives in Brighton, England. 

He came to Canada and to Simcoe something over five years ago, and made his home with his aunt, 
Mrs. J. Pratt, Bank of Commerce building, Simcoe. 
He was an employee of the Dominion Canners, and a member of St. Paul's Church. A brother and his uncle John Pratt are in the 133rd.
