MacPherson, John

Oct 1916

Died From Wounds – John MacPheson, son of Daniel MacPherson of Morar, Antigonish, has made the supreme sacrifice. Gunshot wounds  chest and arms caused him to be invalided back to England some four weeks ago and two weeks later his death was reported from an hospital in Birmingham. A nursing sister, writing to his father, pays tribute to the young lads cheerfulness and pluck notwithstanding his severe injuries.  A member of a western battalion, he was only two week in the trenches when he received the leaden messages.
