Went overseas as the signalling
officer of the 133rd.
He afterwards qualified as an aviator and had been
in France as a Flight Lieutenant for a few weeks.
Lieut. Souter was from Hamilton,
where his father,
Mr. James Souter, of the Malcolm Souter Co., recently received a
cable informing him that he had been missing since April 11th.
He was last seen 100 feet in the
air above the enemy's lines observing their movement and reporting
to his base. It is believed that he was shot down during the
engagement on the 11th inst., and was taken prisoner or killed
while doing his duty for King and country.
Observer Souter was 23 years of
age and was born and resided all his life in Hamilton. He had
completed his second year at Toronto University in S.P.S. and left
there to join the 13th Regiment.
When he qualified as a signaller
he took very high marks and was immediately selected to be
signalling officer of the 133rd. He is the first officer of that
unit to fall in action.
