Pte. Andrew Moir official reported killed in action

The following telegram was received by Mrs. Andrew Moir yesterday.

Ottawa, Jan. 5, 1943.

Mrs. Janet Moir,
133 William St. N.

Regret deeply C65625, Pte. Ander Moir now officially reported killed in action at Hong Kong. Date of death not yet reported. Further information follows when received.


This sad intelligence comes after over a year of dreadful suspense. Pte. Andrew, son of Mr. and Mrs. David Moir, was on 18 and four months old when Hong Kong fell.


Probably few families in this country are better represented in His Majesty’s armed forces as two other sons and two sons-in-law are also in the service.


Pte. Dave Moir has been in England over three years. Corporal Alex Moir is in the Medical corps at Sydney, N.S. Bdr. A. Crossley, husband of Janet Moir is at Petawawa with the 56th anti-tank battery and Sergeant Instructor Grant Stickle, husband of Alice Moir, is stationed at Brampton, with the H. and P.E. Regiment.


Friends of the Moir family will deeply sympathize with them in the loss of their young soldier.
