Mrs. Livinia Barnsley of 74 Cambridge St. S., has received official advice from the Director of Records, Dept. of National Defence, Ottawa, to the effect that her son, Pte. Leonard Ross, was officially reported killed on August 5, while serving with the Canadian Forces in France.

Pte. Barnsley was in his 19th year and lived in Lindsay all his life previous to 1943, when following in the footsteps of his father, (a veteran of World War I) he responded to his country’s call and signed up for general service in Canada’s Armed Forces, with the Dufferin, Alderman Rifles Regiment.

He trained at Toronto, Camp Borden and finally at Niagara at which place he completed his training in Canada and went overseas to England, later proceeding to the French Coast.

The Post on behalf of the community extends sincere sympathy to the bereaved family.
