Lieut. Lindsay Vogan has made the supreme sacrifice. Reported wounded a week ago, a further cable to his mother, Mrs. E. Vogan, Grace Street, to-day, announced his death from wounds. This make the second death in the family, Lieut. Stanley Vogan, a brother, a member of the 71st Battalion, was reported killed in action some months ago.

Lieut. Lindsay Vogan was a very popular young man. At the time of his enlistment he was attending the Collegiate Institute. He enlisted in the 18th Battalion and carried the title of sergeant, which he had acquired in the old 22nd Oxford Rifles. He was known in the overseas unit as the “baby sergeant,” on account of his youth, not having yet attained his eighteenth year when he enlisted. He was a sergeant in Capt. Woodroofe’s company in the 22nd Regiment, “and one of the best in the regiment,” stated Capt. Woodroofe this morning on being appraised of his death. After going overseas he was transferred to the 13th Imperial Middlesex Regiment. He added to his career as a soldier by being advanced to the rank of lieutenant in the British unit. Lindsay Vogan had a host of friends in Woodstock, who will learn of deep regret of his death. Lieut. L. Vogan was insured at the time of his enlistment by the Oxford Patriotic Association, for $500 in the Imperial Life.
