A large number attended the funeral Friday afternoon of little Robert Blaine, who died on Monday night from injuries received in an accident on the previous Sunday.

His father, Cpl. Robert Blaine, R.C.A.F., was unable to return in time for the funeral.

Four school chums of an older brother, and who had known the little lad all his life, were casket bearers: Douglas Aiton, Clarence Rushton, Angus MacMillan and William Lewis.

Rev. W.J. Watt, of Trinity United Church, assisted by Rev. E.A. Brooks, of St. Andrew's Anglican Church, conducted the funeral services. Interment was in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.
