Hart Leech enlisted in Winnipeg in 1914 and served as a lieutenant with the 61st Battalion in France. He was killed in September of 1916. This collection consists of a letter by Hart to his mother written in 1916 just before his death but not found until 1928, a letter by his former captain to his father written in 1928, his obituary, an article published in 1928 which describes the circumstances of the delayed letter, and one photograph. All the written materials were published in The Manitoba Free Press.
