(Transcript in the Ricketts VC Lummis File, National Army Museum, London.) 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."
