THE END
Page Two Hundred Eighty-Six


The Editor considers it very unfortunate that all the photographs of the men who formed the First Contingent of Newfoundlandís Fighting Battalion were not obtainable. Where the photographs were not obtained, a space has been left so that anyone interested in a particular soldier, whose photograph does not accompany his military record, can have a photograph made the uniform size and pasted in the space provided for that purpose.
