Pantall , Bernard serving as Symonds, George: Service no. 401335


Digitized Service Record


Blog Entry Here regarding this soldier and the use of a pseudonym.

“Killed in Action” He was killed by an enemy shell before reaching the first objective at Vimy Ridge.
Discharge Documents
The text in red is not, in my opinion, correct. This soldier was a member of the Royal Canadian Regiment and was discharged/invalided out to the army due to illness. He then re-enlisted under an assumed name.
