Veterans and friends were present in large numbers at the funeral of the late Edson St. John on Friday. It was in charge of the Veterans. Services at the Stonehouse Funeral home and graveside were conducted by Rev. J.A. Ballard, who referred to the service the deceased had given his country and to the fact of his death coming so close to the Armistice anniversary. The flag-draped casket, with cap and bayonet on top, was carried by six veterans, F.T. Shoebridge, Wm. Schwab, Thos. Schofield, D.E. Anderson, Tom Warner and Wm. House. At the cemetery the veterans dropped poppies in the graves and stood at attention while Last Post was sounded by Sergt. W. Phipps of the L. & W. Regiment.
