Agnew, Archie Oct. 4, 1944 Rescued Canucks-- Cpl. Archie Agnew, son of James Agnew, Water St. S., was among a dozen members of the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment who rescued a company of another Canadian regiment who were being overwhelmed by German suicidal paratroopers in Italy. According to a war correspondent the "Hasty P's" rescue party... "dealt the Germans a smashing blow, inflicting heavy casualties, including 26 prisoners of the kind who don't usually surrender. They also captured one 75 mm. gun, a self-propelled gun, two 30-cwt. vehicles, a half track and machine guns." Cpl. Agnew was wounded in action last January but has been back in action for a considerable time. Sgt. Archie Agnew dies of wounds received in Italy Feb. 2, 1945 Sgt. Archibald Agnew, 25, died January 27 as the result of wounds received in action, was the sad news received today by his father, James Agnew, 26 Water St. S. Sgt. Agnew was wounded in action last January. The message received today was the first information Mr. Agnew has received that his son has been wounded a second time. Enlisting October 2, 1939, Sgt. Agnew arrived overseas in the fall of 1941. Sent to the Mediterranean theatre of war soon after it opened, he has seen a lot of action in Italy with the Canadian Infantry Corps. Last October a war correspondent wrote that Sgt. Agnew was one of a dozen infantrymen who has rescued a company of a Canadian regiment from being overwhelmed by German suicidal paratroopers in Italy. Born Decmeber 10, 1919, at Kilbirnie, Ayrshire, Scotland, Sgt. Agnew came to Canada with his parents at the age of nine. He attended Central School and was employed at Galt Creamery before enlisting. Surviving are his father and one brother, James, of Toronto. Another brother, John, was with the Canadian Army during the First Great War and while training in Canada he was killed in an automobile accident in Toronto.
