Murray Paterson Killed

Chatham, 17 Sep 1917 -- Lieut. Murray Paterson has been killed. An official message was received this afternoon by his father, D. S. Paterson, of the Collegiate Institute.

He was in the C.A.M.C., but had been in hospital in England for some time.

A letter was received a few days ago that he was convalescent and had been granted leave. The message is not official, but says he was killed on the railroad.

The deceased officer was awarded the Military Cross about a year ago, and shortly afterward was home here on furlough.


The father, Mr. D. S. Paterson, was principal of the Simcoe High School, preceding Mr. Christie.
