Extract from 'The Trail of the Caribou – The R. Nfld R. 1914 – 1918
by Major Robert Tait MC, Nfld Publishing Co. Inc., Boston, Mass 1933


"Here Ricketts won immortal fame
And added lustre to the name
Of Newfoundland. This but a lad,
Who scarcely sixteen summers had,
Mere youth in years, but man at heart,
Was called to play a hero's part.
Did hero prove? The King's V.C.,
The highest crown for gallantry,
Was his award, and our proud boast-
This fisher lad from northern coast."
