N.B. – To make the record complete, should be added to names of the heroic lads, missing since July 1st 1916. These names have been twice published, and now that all hope of their return has disappeared, to republish would be only to renew heartaches and dim the vision of those whose sorrow has been tempered by the healing influences of time. Added to the roll should be the names of some of our returned soldiers who have passed away in one or other of the city Hospitals during the year. Some day we hope that a complete record may be obtained, inasmuch as those who died of wounds or illness, contracted as a direct result of service, merit equal place and prominence in the Immortal Honor Roll.
