Lieut. Norman Eden Walker, 124th Bn. C.E.F.

Son of Charles Walker and Violet L. Walker (nee Montizambert)

From a letter home by Lieut. Philip Edward Williams of the same 124th Bn. "I have just made some more enquiries about Eden he was killed about 2 AM while in a trench in our old front line he was talking to two Engineer officers and Hugh Watson. Eden was killed and the other three wounded by the same shell evidently a whizz bang or field gun shell which does not give you much chance to duck as it comes so fast."
