Twelve Brantford Men Are Reported Wounded – Canadian Casualty List Included Half Score From This City All of Whom Have Been Wounded – Gunshot in Arms and Legs Cause of Majority of Hospital Cases – First Brant Battalion Draft Hit

Private word received in this city yesterday afternoon and today added 11 new names to the already large casualty list. All were wounded on or about April 9, this being in the attack on Vimy Ridge, which resulted so gloriously for the Canadian forces.

Of all the Brantford men wounded, practically all were shot wounds in the arms or shoulders, legs or thighs. But one of the 11 was reported seriously wounded. The list of casualties follows:

Word was received this morning by Mrs. Thomas Slattery of 112 West Mill Street that her son, Pte. Timothy Joseph Slattery had been severely wounded and admitted on April 10 to the No. 8 Stationary Hospital at Wimereux. He is suffering from a gunshot wound in the left shoulder and also the leg. He was employed on the staff of the Imperial Bank here prior to enlisting with the first Brant County Battalion. He has a brother overseas, William Francis Slattery, who went across with a battalion that wintered here.
