Three times wounded with the First Territorial Regiment in France, during the last war, and later awarded the Mons Star, Norman Lawson, 53, Mountain View apartments, Hamilton, was found dead on a Mountain highway above Ravenscliffe avenue last Friday afternoon. Police were asked to locate Mr. Lawson, who had not been well, when he failed to return to his home Thursday evening. Deceased was well and favourably known in Grimsby having been accountant in the Canadian Bank of Commerce for some years previous to his transfer to Hamilton. His wife was a daughter of the late Wm. Gibson who farmed for some years on the farm now owned by Mr. Kennedy at the corner of Nelles Road and No. 8 highway. He enlisted with a horse artillery company in London, England, the very day England declared war in 1914. Three times wounded, he returned to his unit on each occasion and earned the Mons Star for his gallantry. He was a member of the Church of England. Surviving are his wife, his mother, Mrs. Florence Lawson, London, Eng., and one sister, Mrs. Margaret Litton, also of London, Eng.
