Ashton, Douglas (clipping) 3 July 1944 (image) Rifleman Ashton, whose recent letter to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Ashton, made record time in arriving from France in five days, is reported wounded in action with the invasion forces. Wednesday morning his mother had a premonition that Douglas had been wounded. It was so persistent, that she stepped in the doorway of the C.N.R. telegraph office to see if a wire had come in for her. Telling herself it was foolish, she left the doorway without making the inquiry. In the meantime the office was trying to get in touch with Mr. Ashton, with word of Douglas' injury. SUFFERING CONTUSION Friday brought word that the 21-year-old rifleman is suffering from contusion of the right hip and severe exhaustion. Further information will be forwarded as soon as received, the director of records said. The young soldier was educated at the Duke of Connaught and Rose Avenue public schools, and the Eastern High School of Commerce in Toronto. He was employed with Ingram and Bell surgical supplies, before enlisting with the Queen's Own Rifles in October 1942. His parents moved to the city from Toronto in April 1943, and have a number of relatives in the city. (clipping) 2 December 1944 RIFLEMAN DOUGLAS ASHTON Rifleman Douglas Herbert Ashton, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Ashton, 161 Pandora Ave., has been reported seriously wounded, presumably the second time, it was learned through a Government release. The 21-year-old rifleman was previously wounded in action with the invasion forces in France in June. He was educated in Toronto public schools and at the Eastern High School of Commerce in Toronto. Prior to enlisting with the Queen's Own Rifles in October 1942, he was employed with Ingram and Bell, makers of surgical supplies. Mr. and Mrs. Ashton are at present in California.
