Barber, Franklyn [clipping] Aug. 8, 1944 WOUNDED LAC. Franklyn S. Barber, R.C.A.F son of Mrs. Kathleen Barber, Woodstock St. N., Tavistock and Samuel A. Barber of Woodstock. [clipping] Kitchener Record Aug. 8, 1944 LAC. FRANKLYN BARBER By Record Correspondent TAVISTOCK, Aug. 8 LAC. Barber was seriously injured in an accident early Saturday evening when a jeep overturned at his R.C.A.F. station on the east coast. His mother, Mrs. Kathleen Barber, Woodstock St.N., received two telegrams Monday morning from the officer commanding the station. The telegram stated that the accident occurred near the station about 9:15, and that the young man had been taken to a military hospital. The first telegram stated that a diagnosis had not been made. The second telegram stated briefly that the young man's condition was considered dangerous and that he had suffered internal injuries. It added that word would be sent pending developments. LAC. Barber enlisted with the R.C.A.F. in July 1943 and from the manning depot at Toronto was posted to Belleville and later to Trenton. He was then posted to Centralia for about six months, and since March of this year he has been stationed on the east coast. Prior to enlisting he was employed at the box factory of Zimmerman Brothers, Ltd. He was among the first to enlist with the local platoon of the Oxford Rifles (R) when it formed here two years ago. His father, Samuel A. Barber, lives in Woodstock. He also has two sisters, Miss Katherine, at home, and Miss Ruth, in Kitchener.

Notes
Private William Henderson Bremner was the son of George Bremner and Jane Ann "Jennie" Henderson. Born in Berlin, Ontario on April 14, 1890. He was of Presbyterian faith. William married Minnie Smith on March 15, 1910 in Berlin. At the time he was a shoemaker. In 1912 he travelled to the USA and was a builder, and identified as having a Scottish background. On his passenger manifest to the US, he notes his address as 102 Lancaster St. W in Berlin. William and Minnie had 3 children, Hilda, Mabel and George, all born before the war. He enlisted April 12 1916 at Berlin. His attestation papers list Minnie as his next of kin who was originally listed as living at 135 Ahrens Street, but then moved to 56 Krug Street. He was 5 feet, 6 1/2 inches tall, with a ruddy complexion, brown hair and blue eyes. He was noted as a rubber worker, and had previously served 7 months with the 108th Regiment. He was 5 feet, 6 inches tall, with a clear complexion, light hazel eyes and light brown hair. After the war, William returned home to his family and at the time of the 1921 census of Canada, William and his family were living in South Montreal (4A Prefontaine Street) where William worked as a Pattern Maker. They must have moved back to Ontario by 1930 - in this year they lost their daughter Mabel, aged 18 years, and she is buried in the Woodstock Presbyterian Cemetery. William and Minnie are buried in the same cemetery, William passed away in 1960 and Minnie in 1984.
