Mr. and Mrs. A. Yokom of Pasqua Notified of Flight-Lieut. F. Yokom's Death in Air Accident

Frank Yokom [sic], flight-lieutenant in the R.A.F., was killed in France while flying on 10 Feb 1919, according to word received by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. Yokom of Pasqua last night. 

The news was conveyed to the parents in the District Court while Mr. Yokom was testifying as a witness.

Flight-Lieut. Yokom, who was 19 years of age, was a graduate of Moose Jaw College, and was one of the first boys from this district to enlist in the flying corps. 

For many months prior to the signing of the armistice he had been flying in England and France.

The deceased's father formerly conducted a general store business in Pasqua, but at the present time he farms on a large scale in the Pasqua district. 

Mrs. Yokom intended going to England this spring and returning with her son in the summer.

Mrs. Aley Boughner and Mrs. Geo. Ponting of Simcoe are aunts of the deceased.
