Pte. David Julian - was an Englishman by birth, but had been a resident of the district for a number of years, working for Mr. Thomas Sowerby on the Ridge Road, North Grimsby. When war broke out, he tried for overseas but was turned down. He then joined the Home Guard and later tried the examination and passed, being attached to the 76th Battalion. He spent the winter in Barrie with the battalion and went overseas last spring. He was about 25 years of age. Information received by Mrs. Sowerby this morning states that he was shot through the thigh, and the leg had to be amputated. He died during the operation.
