He went to France in May and was in action until he was killed August 15, 1917 at Hill 70. As he was going back to the communication trench he was hit in the neck and side by shrapnel and the wound proved fatal. His next of kin is Margaret A.Parker, Preston, Ontario. In two days' fighting previous to his death he kept up communications so well during the hard fighting that his superior officer recommended him for bravery.
