One year ago yesterday, August 18th, Pte. Warren Tuck, son of Corp. and Mrs. H.O. Tuck, Smithville, grandson of Mrs. Peter Felker, Grimsby and nephew of Vernon Tuck, Grimsby, received fatal wounds at Dieppe and later passed away in a French hospital. Last week Mrs. Tuck received notification from the Department of National Defence, as to the last resting place of her son. The letter is as follows: "Further to this Department's letter of December 9, last, concerning death of your son, the marginally named, I am to advise that information has now come to hand through the overseas military authorities that the remains of Private Tuck have been interred in grave 268, Des Vertus cemetery, Hautot-Sur-Mere, France." Yours truly, F.R. Reading, for W.E.L. Coleman, Colonel Director of Records for Adjutant General.
