SGT. OUTHWAITE KILLED.
Sergeant William Outhwaite of 1611 Lappin avenue, fought at St. Julien, and lived, but official word of his subsequent death came to his mother yesterday. In his last letter, he hoped that he might return safely.
Outhwaite was born in England, but lived in Toronto for some years. When the war came, he was a member of the Halton Rifles, and enlisted in the 4th Battalion.
