Stuebing, Carl

Private.

Son of Mr. William Stuebing formerly of Benton St., Kitchener and now of Dunnville. He left Kitchener when still a young boy.

He enlisted at Dunville, August 7, 1914 with a company of 37th Haldimand Rifles.

At Valcartier he was transferred to Lord Strathcona's Horse.

He worked at shoeing horses till 1917 when he took a Hotchkiss Machine Gun.

From then till August 8, 1918 he was in every action with his gun and worked until no ammunition was forthcoming. He was reported wounded in the retreat of March 1918 but never went out of action.

On August 8 he was wounded and after much persuasion was induced to leave the field.

As he was preparing to do so, he was shot through the heart and killed instantly.
