Mr. and Mrs. Foster Lyttle, 52 Elgin St., town, received word recently telling them of their son’s death in France.

The message stated that Pte. Douglas Lyttle had died as a result of wounds he had received while on combat duty with his unit.

Pte. Lyttle enlisted in August, 1943 and had only been overseas since August this year. He trained at Camp Border and Ipperwash in Canada during the year following his enlistment.

Mr. Foster Lyttle, the boy’s father has been a foreman with the John [illegible] Lumber Co. for a number of years.

One brother, Robert, has just returned from overseas where he was attached to the Forestry Corps, and another brother Clifford is still in Scotland. He also is with the Forestry Corps.

The sincere sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved family.
