Writes Boy’s Mother Own Sentiments
The following letter to Mrs. Geo. Burley of Fenelon Falls, speaks for itself and its sentiments will be echoed by who knew the late W.O. Herbert Burley.
Dear Mrs. Burley: -
Today, when Montreal was going crazy with delight at the news of the official end of the war, somehow or other I could not enter into the spirit of things.
The picture of the four other men with whom I joined my first squadron kept flashing through my mind: Pete Burley, Bud Hambly,
Bradshaw, and Harold Bumstead, four of the grandest chaps one could ever hope to meet.
These men, and all the other who like them, made the supreme sacrifice are the ones to whom the world is indebted.
May your sorrow be tempered by the pride you have a right to feel in this hour of victory.
My deed sympathy goes out to you tonight.
