In a little town in rural England is a churchyard with a single Military grave, Private Edward Smith of the 3rd Battalion, CEF. Guy Ellis has done extensive research on this soldier and written up his history in the British publication “History Journal”. Please give it a read, it’s a fascinating look at what happened to some of the soldiers who enlisted, and fell ill while in England. And a great way to honour a Canadian soldier.
Note: The article, “Wellington Down”, accessible on the same site, deals with the Second World War Flight Sergeant (Pilot) James McCausland from Marysville. New Brunswick.
