Brantford Casualties

This morning’s casualty list contains the name of two more Brantford men who have been wounded on the field of battle, Pte. Edward Christie and Pte. John Kennedy. Toronto papers give Christie’s address as 100 Dalhousie Street. The Expositor lists give Ed Christie as residing at 3 Gilkinson Street, and it is quite probable this is the same man. He is a married man 19 years of age, and was a member of the 25th Brant Dragoons. He left on July 7, 1915.

John Kennedy is given as being a single man who resided at 88 West Mill Street. Previous to enlistment he spent three months with the 38th Dufferin Rifles.
