Joseph Henry

Pte. Norman Wilfred Henry, son of Mrs. Christine Henry, of the Mississaugas of the Credit Reserve, lost his life in the Battle of Dieppe on August 19, 1942. Fighting with the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry, Pte. Henry had been with his unit for a long time and his gallant record added luster to the contribution made by the members of his Reservation in the Second Great War. His brother, Pvt. Joseph Henry, was with the United States Army Air Force and he too lost his life while on air operations over Germany on the eve of V-E Day in May, 1945. Thus their mother, Mrs. Christine Henry had a double burden of sorrow to bear, made all the more difficult because her husband, a veteran of the First Great War, passed away in 1939.
