Transcription
[clipping] 17 Aug 1944 Dyer, Reginald [image] Rifleman Reginald Dyer Rifleman Dyer has never lived in the city. His wife moved here when his duties carried him to other fields. Born at Ridstone, Alta., he worked at Kirkland Lake and Ajax before enlisting with the Queen's Own Rifles in July, 1942. He went overseas in January, 1943. In a recent letter to his wife, he told her the slight shrapnel wound in his right shoulder was healing, and that he expected to be able to leave the hospital soon.
