Reported missing in action recently, Tpr. Arthur McGregor, 29, third son of Mr. and Mrs. Adam McGregor, Grimsby, is now officially reported as "killed in action". His wife, the former Doris Camden, and three young children reside at 462 Sherman Avenue South, Hamilton.

Enlisting in the Armoured Corps in 1943, he went overseas in June last and when last heard from by his family, was in Holland. A letter from him was received on Saturday. It had been written a day or so before the date of his death as given in the official notification. A brother, Gerald, is also serving overseas with an armoured unit.

Relatives in Grimsby have received word from Charles and Mrs. Norton, Wilmington, De., advising that their son, Charles, has been killed overseas as the result of a crash landing on his Carrier ship with the plane going into the sea. He was returning from a combat air patrol in the forward area. He was a member of the American Naval Air Arm and had seen considerable service in the South Pacific. The father is a former Grimsby boy but has been a resident of the U.S. for many years.
