Pte. K. Gemmill wounded by shrapnel in right hand
Son of Mrs. Gemmill, Wellington St. has been in Italy since the beginning of hostilities there. First reported injury.
Bazil and Keith Gemmill have been stationed in Italy since the war moved onto the heel of that country and Keith has, unfortunately, been wounded in battle during recent activities. These are the words of Mrs. Gemmill, mother of the wounded man.
Pte. Keith Bazil is not seriously wounded Mrs. Gemmill stated. The official communique as received by the soldier’s mother, states that “Pte. Keith Eldon Gemmill has been wounded by shrapnel in his right hand.” The nature of his wounds are not considered to be serious and is it expected that this serviceman will resume active duty after his period of hospitalization and recovery is over.
Another son of Mrs. Gemmill’s was recently invalided home from overseas. Patrick still another son in the armed forces served aboard ship during the Invasion landings in Normandy. Mrs. Gemmill recently heard from him and although he couldn’t state many particulars he seemed to be enjoying the experience. The letter was mailed from England.
Pte. Keith Gemmill was educated in Lindsay. He attended Lindsay Collegiate Institute for some time.
And so the story of valour and heroism goes with such people as the “Gemmill’s” contributing to the successful prosecution of the war.
