[photo of] LIEUT. GEO. C. WILLIS.

Three Toronto officers are mentioned by the Eyewitness: Lieut. “Ted” Doheny, 10 Douglas Drive, whose leg was blown off by a shell, thought only of his men until death came; Lieut. G. E. B. Platt, 1574 King street west, who was fatally wounded while making a reconnaissance, died after his men had heroically rescued him under fire from a shell hole; Lieut. Geo. C. Willis, who has been awarded the Military Cross for bringing in a wounded man from “No Man’s Land,” left with the 35th Battalion, but was transferred later. His home is in Sutton West, Ont.
