For the second time within 8 months, Mrs. Sarah Carleton, North Grimsby, has had the word conveyed to her, officially, that a son was missing overseas. On Sunday Mrs. Carleton was notified that "Sergt. James Carleton, R.C.A.F. is reported missing after air operations." Sergt. Carleton was a brother of Pte. John A. Carleton, R.H.L.I. who was badly wounded and taken prisoner at Dieppe; operated upon and had a leg amputated in October and died in a German prison camp in December. Grimsby's first army casualty. Another brother, Joseph, is with the Lincoln and Welland Regt. overseas. The three Carleton boys in this war followed in the footsteps of their father, the late Joseph Carleton, who was a veteran of the "Mad Fourth" battalion of the last war.
