VETERANS AFFAIRS CANADA
BREAKWATER BOOKS LIMITED, NEWFOUNDLAND has kindly granted permission to
transcribe the Appendices of the book titled "What became of Cpl Pittman"
by Joy B. Cave.
|The author would like to make it clear that the first four Nominal Rolls are completely the work of Mr. V.H.B. Snow, District Director of Veterans Welfare, and Miss Wheeler, of the Department of Veterans Affairs in St. John's. Appendix 5, the Roll of Honour containing details of the resting places of those killed on 1st July, 1916 (as in Mr. Snow's Nominal Roll No. 1) was compiled by the author, by kind permission of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Appendix 6, containing the details of the graves of those men who died later of wounds received at Beaumont Hamel, or who died in actions just previous to the attack, was compiled from information supplied by Major C. Sydney Frost of Toronto. I gratefully acknowledge the help given by Mr. Snow, Miss Wheeler and Major Frost, and would point out that no part of these lists may be reproduced unless permission is sought from the Department of Veterans Affairs in St. John's.
