Paris Again is Hit by Recent Canuck Drive – Private Waldron Wallace Officially Reported Killed in Action

PARIS, Sept. 18 – Yesterday morning Mr. and Mrs. John Wallace, Jane Street, received from Ottawa by telegram the sad news that their only son, Private Waldron Watson Wallace, had been killed in action on September 4th. Private Wallace joined the 125th Battalion in 1916, and later was transferred to the 215th Battalion. For some time he was in Hamilton, employed as a sergeant instructor, and went over to England in February last. To get to the front he gave up his stripes and joined the machine gun section, and only went to France in August with No.5 Canadian Machine Gun Company. Deceased, who was in his 29th year, was born and educated in Walkerton, Ont., and had resided in Paris with his parents for the past six years. He was a member of the Congregational Church and Young People’s Society and Y.M.C.A., and was much admired for his genial disposition and manly acts by his many friends. Besides his father and mother are left five sisters, Mrs. Vernon Eaton of Etonia; Mrs. James Creeden of Paris; Miss Nelda, of Toronto and the Misses Vera and Olivet at home.
