Pte. Joseph Molnar, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Molnar, 176 Sydenham Street, was killed in action on April 10, 1945, at Wertle, Germany, and was laid to rest there. Tragically enough, it was with the end of the war nearly in sight and after a long record of actual battle action that Pte. Molnar gave his life to aid in the final destruction of the German Army. He had joined the medical corps of the Canadian Army on September 8, 1942, and, after training at Peterborough and Camp Borden, left for overseas in February, 1943. He was transferred to the 48th Highlanders of Canada and with his regiment saw battle action in Italy, Belgium and Germany. Born in Brantford, October 23, 1921, Joseph attended St. Basil's Church and School. Up until the time of his enlistment he was employed by the Slingsby Manufacturing Company, Ltd.
