The War Diary relates on the date (June 22, 1916) of death of Private Victor Dawe:
Position quiet. LIEUTS. W.F. COLE and J.F. PERKINS proceeded on leave. 6 ors [other ranks] wounded. 2 ors returned from hospital. 2 ors died of wounds.
A 25 year old teacher from Bay Roberts, Newfoundland made the ultimate sacrifice. Private Dawe’s Circumstances of Casualty Card holds more about the sacrifice of this soldier:
“Died of Wounds”
On the night of June 21st/22nd 1916, Private Dawe accompanied by Private Kemp made a daring reconnaissance of the enemy wire opposite our trenches. While returning they were discovered and fired on by rifles and grenades from the enemy front line. Both men were wounded, Private Dawe by a bullet in the head, and he later died at No. 3 Canadian Casualty Clearing Station.
It appears the Private Kemp survived the patrol but another soldier, Private Archiebald Fleming Veitch , 407045 was the other KIA that day.
