Cause and Place of Death: Killed in Action

BC December 15, 1917

The sad intelligence was received by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Stevenson last December that their son, Pte. Ben Stevenson had been killed in action. He had enlisted in the 25th Brant Dragoons, but later joined the 84th Battalion and left for overseas in May last. He was born in Brantford, but came to Paris with his parents seven years ago, working principally in the country around this section. He was 19 years of age, unmarried and attended the Baptist Church.
