Pte. Fred Bloomfield
Fred Bloomfield was born in Hespeler twenty-one years ago, and at the age of three moved with his parents to Beaverdale where he has lived since that time.
A good sportsman, Fred was a familiar figure in hockey circles, and played on both the Beaverdale team and his local church team. He also enjoyed hunting and was never happier than when on a cross-country tramp with his dog and gun.
He enlisted in London, on September 9th, 1939, with the Canadian Army Service Corps, and trained at London and Camp Borden. He has been overseas since July 14th, 1940.
