Trooper John H. Hardy makes Supreme Sacrifice


Mr. and Mrs. H. Hardy, 39 Glenelg St. W., town, received the sad news this morning of the death of their soldier son, Trooper John H. Hardy, while serving on active duty for his country in France, on Sept. 14.


-Born in Ops Township, he would have attained his 19th birthday at Christmas of this year. He received his early education in Ops, attending Public School No. 11 there, and later coming to Lindsay, where he wrote his entrance examination and continued his studies at the Lindsay Collegiate Institute.


Previous to enlisting in the Canadian Army on May 17, 1943, he was employed by the Canadian Pacific Telegraph Co. here and was taking a course in wireless telegraphy.


Following his enlistment, he continued his studies in Wireless and at the time of his death he was a wireless operator attached to a tank corps with a British Columbia Regiment.


He arrived in England on February 26, this year and had been in France only a short time.


In faith the deceased was a member of Cambridge Street Baptist Church. The sincere sympathy of this community is extended to the bereaved family.
