We are a military family and so for us Remembrance Day is every day, as I'm sure it was for the Newman family who lived behind this door on Armstrong Street during World War One. On February 24th, 1915 Arthur William Newman became a Private in the 38th Battalion Expeditionary Force and then 2 days later his brother, Lester, was enlisted. Their poor mother! Of about 4,500 men who passed through the Battalion while posted in Bermuda, England and on Vimy Ridge, 700 were killed and approximately 2,000 wounded. As I cannot find anything else about the two young brothers, it is quite possible that they were among the brave young soldiers who gave up promising futures so we can have the opportunities and experiences we cling to so strongly today. May they rest in peace.
