Adams, L.R. [clipping] 11, Dec 1940 [image] Enlisted Dec. 11, 1940 L.R. Adams [clipping] 09 Oct 1945 Waterloo County P.O.W. on Way Home From East A letter and a telegram are small things but those received by Mr. and Mrs. L.L.Adams, R.R.3, Kitchener, from their son, Pte. Lawrence Adams, 23, over the weekend, were instrumental in making Thanksgiving the happiest in their lives. The telegram received Saturday announced that Pte. Adams, a Japanese-held prisoner-of-war for almost four years, was on his way home. Released from the Jap prison camp only on Sept. 15, Pte. Adams wrote the letter from Guam and the telegram from California where he had just landed. The missives were the first, other than a card and letter, which his anxious parents had received from the young soldier since his internment in December, 1941. "We had more to be thankful for this Thanksgiving than ever before in our lives," said Mrs. Adams in announcing the receipt of the telegram. It is expected that Pte. Adams will arrive home within the next two weeks. He will be the first prisoner-of-war from the Twin City area to be released from Japanese hands. Delay in the release of Pte. Adams is thought by his parents to be due to the fact that he was held in Camp No.5, Tokyo, where the prisoners have been put to work in mines. Pte. Adams informed his parents in his letter that he was well but anxious to get home. The youthful soldier enlisted with the Royal Canadian Regiment in June 1940, later transferring to the Quebec Royal Rifles before going overseas in October, 1941. He was taken prisoner shortly after the fall of Hong Kong in December, 1941. Pte. Adams' wife, Frances, who has been residing in Orillia, is coming to stay with Mr. and Mrs. Adams to await his return.

Allcroft, Morgan [clipping] 8 Sept 1941? 3 Kitchener Brothers in Army [image] Three soldier brothers, sons of Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Allcroft, King street west, are shown in the above photo. The trio recently joined active service units of His Majesty's Forces. From left to right they are Cpl. Morgan G., Battery-Sgt.- Major Frank E. J., and Lance-Cpl. Roger F. Battery Sgt.-Major Allcroft is stationed in Nove Scotia. [image] 7 January 1945 With British Lieut. M. G. Allcroft, Canadian Infantry Corps, a son of Roger Allcroft of 8 Schneider Avenue, has volunteered for service with the British Army.
[clipping] 4 April 1945 Lieut. M. G. Allcroft Serving with the British Army to which he has been on loan, Lieut. M. G. Allcroft, 25, has been wounded in Germany. A telegram received by his brother Roger Allcroft, 8 Schneider Ave., yesterday, stated that Lieut Allcroft was suffering from a wound in his right thigh and laceration of the left leg. Seriousness of the wounds was not indicated. Arriving overseas a year ago, Lieut. Allcroft took part in the invasion in December. He enlisted with the Canadian Infantry Corps. in Sept 1940 The son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Francis J. Allcroft, Lieut. Allcroft, a native of Toronto, took up residence in Kitchener seven years ago. [clipping] 7 June 1945 Both Legs Hurt, Now in Hospital On loan to the British Army, in which he served with the 6th Airborne Division, Lieut. Morgan G. Allcroft, of 8 Schneider Ave., is under treatment at Crumlin, Ont., Military Hospital for wounds to both legs. Relatives here pieced together as best they could the events which led to his injuries, suffered in Germany during the latter part of March. Men of his unit, travelling in gliders, had crossed the rhine, to find themselves surrounded by enemy forces. Fire was heavy, and the nose of Allcroft's glider was damaged in the river crossing. He found one glider in his platoon was missing after the crossing, so went in search of the craft. It was not to be found and, while returning to his unit, a sniper's bullet hit him in the leg. Lieut. Allcroft kept right on going, but fate had another nasty surprise in store for him. A few moments later, an 88 mm. shell exploded hurling shrapnel into the one "good" leg. He arrived at Halifax aboard the Red Cross ship Letitia, and since that time three pieces of shrapnel have been removed. There are six more pieces to come out. The 25-year-old soldier was an instructor at No. 10 B.T.C. here early in the war, spending a year and a half at that army centre. He later instructed at Guelph and Listowel, then going to Gordon Head, B.C., where he received his commission. Lieut. Allcroft enlisted in the summer of 1940, and went overseas in May of last year. His brother Roger, now discharged, was with the R.C.A.F.
