PTE. JAMES BURT
Word reached this city yesterday that Pte. James Burt was killed in action on April 12th. Pte. Burt enlisted in Dorchester with a Western Ontario Battalion, but on his arrival in England he was transferred to the 116th Battalion. He was then chosen as a member of a draft to go to France and reinforce another Western Ontario Battalion, and it was while in action with this latter unit that he met his death.
