Barker, George Charles Private. Regiment number: 7120 George served with the 1st Battalion (Western Ontario Regiment) in Belgium. He enlisted, and signed his attestation papers in September 1914 in Valcartier, Quebec when he was 19. He listed himself as a member of the Church of England. George was born on January 12, 1896 in Brentwood, Essex, England to Henry and Mary Barker. She was noted as his next of kin, living at Crookston Park, Blair, Ontario, as he was unmarried. On enlistment, he worked as a Buffer and Polisher at the Galt Brass Works, and had served for a year in the 29th Waterloo Regiment. There is some confusion about the details of his death, but he was listed as missing and presumed dead as of April 22, 1915 near Ypres (Vlamertinghe), Belgium. The Battalion had just arrived in Belgium when the Second Battle of Ypres began. The Germans attacked with the first large-scale use of chlorine gas. George is commemorated on page 4 of the First World War Book of Remembrance, as well as on the Menin Gate (Ypres) Memorial, Belgium (panel 10-26-28), and the Galt War Memorial in Cambridge, Ontario.

Bartlett, Jack [clipping] 13 Sept 1944 Sergt. Jack Bartlett wounded in legs [image] Sgt. Jack Bartlett of Galt has been wounded in France, according to a report received by his mother, Mrs. F.E. Bartlett, 3025 Queen St. E., Toronto. Sgt. Bartlett, Evening Telegram representative in Galt for several years and a member of The Reporter news staff when he enlisted in the H. H. I. of C., related in a letter received today by a member of The Reporter staff, that the back of his legs had been “splattered” by shrapnel from a booby trap. “The lad who set it off was killed instantly but I was fortunate in only getting the tail end of the blast and should be back with my brigade within a week.” Sgt. Bartlett, who was awarded the British Empire Medal in the King's birthday honors list, went overeas with the 1st Bn. H. L. I. of C. For some time before the invasion of France and since going to France he has been serving with a Canadian army brigade headquarters. ”It was rather ironical that I should have been blitzed after our first big advance. We had pushed forward 30 miles that day and I spent all that night and until late afternoon of the next day getting back again to a base hospital.” One of three brothers in uniform, Capt. R. L. Bartlett, R.C.O.C., has just returned home after four years' service overseas and Lt. Cmdr. Ernest Bartlett, R.C.N.V.R., is a prisoner of war in Germany.
