Lindsay Soldiers are Home
Two sons home, one in Hong Kong, one in Nova Scotia, another Lindsay boy home from overseas
Dave and Edrio Moir, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Moir, 79 Melbourne St. W. returned from overseas last week, both having seen considerable service in the various theatres of war. Dave, who signed up in 1939 at Piton, with the Hastings and Prince Edward Regt., proceeded overseas the same year and saw service in Sicily, Holland and finally finished up in Germany. He is now home on a thirty day leave. He was not at home when the Warder representative called and when questioned as to his future, his mother stated he had the option of returning to duty with the occupation force in Germany or discharge.
The younger brother Edric signed up with the artillery at Peterboro in the Spring of 1943, going overseas the summer of the same year and shortly after arriving overseas transferred to the Stormont Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders. This famous Regiment has been very much in the limelight, having taken part in the Battles of France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. It was in the latter county that Edric received a wound in the right arm and is at present receiving hospital treatment.
Mr. and Mrs. Moir have four sons in the service; Andrew who signed up with the First Midland Regiment was taken prisoner at Hong Kong and his parents so far have received no word from him; another son Alex who is serving on the medical staff with the RCAF who is at present stationed at Nova Scotia.
