Pte. Baber is Wounded in Normandy
Word has just been received by Mrs. George Baber of Lindsay from the Department of National Defense at Ottawa stating that her husband, Pte. George Baber has been officially reported wounded while serving with his regiment in Normandy.
According to the telegram, Pte. Baber’s wounds are confined to one arm and a complete recovery is expected.
Pte. Baber joined the services at Peterboro nearly three years ago. From Peterboro he was posted to Camp Petawawa and from there to Newfoundland where he completed his training in this country and left for overseas.
Before enlisting Pte. Baber figured prominently in the sporting activities of Lindsay.
Pte. George O. Baber, husband of Jessie C. (McNevin) Baber, of Lindsay, is expected to arrive home this evening.

- This card is part of a larger collection of World War II personnel clippings. The project began in 1944 at the Lindsay Library. The intent was to gather together as much information as possible on the military record and the service of people from the Town of Lindsay and the County of Victoria (now Kawartha Lakes)who served in the war. To that end, during the years 1944, 1945, and 1946, members of the public donated photographs and updated information about their loved ones. Both library staff and the public saved and donated newspaper clippings. Some of the files contain great amounts of detail, while others have just a name.
