ANIMI MAXIMI 



This is the story of T.C.S. boys at war, and more particularly 
of those who served in the Second World War of 1939-1945. 



Trinity College School is of no great age; it marked its 
seventy-fifth birthday on May 1st, 1940, when a memorable 
celebration was held at Port Hope. Yet three times its boys 
have heard the call to war, and three times they have responded 
in full measure. A number of those who served in the First 
World War or in the Second World War were only fourteen years 
of age when war broke out; many of those on active service in 
the Second World War had already seen service in the First 
World War. Over a third of all the boys who have entered the 
School in eighty-three years have enlisted in time of war. 

T.C.S. people have often regretted the absence of any com- 
plete record of the part played by Old Boys in the South African 
War and the First World War. A paper-covered booklet was 
issued in 1919 but the information was far from complete. Only 
the summaries of such service can now be given, but it will be 
noticed how the whole-hearted and full response of 1914-1918 
was reflected in 1939-1945. Those killed in action were most 
happily much fewer in number in the Second World War, owing, 
of course, to the different character of the fighting. 

In the brief stories about T.C.S. Old Boys in the Second 
World War there are bound to be many omissions. Despite our 
every effort to obtain all the important details, it has been found 
impossible in many cases to give more than the naked outline of 
the service rendered. 



The record speaks for itself. No verbal embellishment can 
add to this story of simple gallantry and service by a com- 
paratively small group of men who had attended the same School. 
But we who knew them well can never forget them and their 
bravery in defence of the ideals of democracy.

THE FIRST WORLD WAR 
1914 - 1918 

Until 1924 when the new Junior School was opened, the maximum 
number of boys in the School in any one year was one hundred 
and forty. 

Those who enlisted 596 

(Including nine former Masters) 

Those who were killed 123 

Awards won for gallantry or 

distinguished service 180 

The number of Old Boys who enlisted was equal to 90% of all 
the boys who left the School during the twenty years before the 
war. 



THE SECOND WORLD WAR 

Those who enlisted 855 

(Including twenty former Masters) 

In the Army 453 

In the Navy 188 

In the Air Force 214 

Those who were killed 60 

Awards won for gallantry 

or distinguished service 184 

Those who had served in the First 

World War 60 

The number of T.C.S. boys on active service in the Second 
World War was equal to over 98 r /c of all the boys who left the 
School during the twenty years before the war. 

The number of awards won by T.C.S. boys is quite exceptional. 
It is equal to twenty-one per cent of the total enlistment and 
probably over thirty per cent of those who took part in the actual 
fighting. 

Over fourteen hundred T.C.S. boys served in three wars or 
41% of all boys who entered the School hi the seventy-four 
years before the beginning of the Second World War.

Oh no! for something in thy face did shine 
Above mortality that showed thou wast divine.' 

John Milton

CARTWRIGHT, G. S. 

Cartwright, George Stevenson C20-'26), was born June 5, 1908, in 
London, England. During his six years at T.C.S. he created an enviable 
record, applying himself whole-heartedly to all the activities of school 
life. He played on the first. football team in 1924 and 1925, being captain 
of the team in the latter year. He also played on the cricket eleven for

He entered Trinity College, Toronto, and there continued his 
brilliant record. In 1928, he was a member of the Championship O.R.F.U. 
Varsity football team, rowed in the Varsity eight, and took a leading 
part in many student organizations. He was a member of the Kappa 
Alpha Fraternity. In 1929, he was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship for 
Ontario and entered Christ Church, Oxford, in the autumn of that year. 
At Oxford he won a half blue for lacrosse and again distinguished him- 
self in his studies, taking his Bachelor's degree and a postgraduate 
degree of Bachelor of Literature during his three years there. After 
his return to Canada, he was Secretary to the Right Hon. Vincent Massey 
and then became editor of the Canadian Forum. Later he was appointed 
Managing Editor of Current History, New York. He contributed articles

Page Ten 



when his pilot was unable to fly, he volunteered as navigator with 
another crew. Over Hamburg, his Wellington ran into very heavy anti- 
aircraft fire and the plane was badly hit. The pilot gave orders to bail 
out and two of the crew jumped. With the lighter load, the rest of the 
crew decided to try to get home. They reached the East Anglian coast 
safely and the pilot tried to make an emergency landing. The crash 
killed both the pilot and Steven Cartwright; the rear gunner, who lived 
a short time, related the details. Cartwright was the first Rhodes Scholar 
to be killed in the Second World War and was posthumously awarded 
the Operational Wings of the R.C.A.F. in 1946.

record as a runner. In 1930 and 1931 he ran in the Oxford Cup race and 
his record of twenty-two minutes thirty seconds made in 1930 has never 
been beaten. He played on the first football team during his last two

crew had been wounded. On February 12, 1942, he was killed in action 
while attacking the German warships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau in the 
English Channel. 

The Air Ministry reported the action as follows: "He was acting

DUNCAN, J. A. C. 

Duncan, John Andrew Cardew C40-'42), was born November 30, 
1924, at Rawalpindi, India. He came to T.C.S. from England where he 
had been at Eton. With his winning personality, he entered into all 
phases of school life with enthusiasm and during his final year was in 
the Fifth Form, a member of the Choir, a Sacristan, and a brilliant soccer 
player. Though only seventeen years of age, he felt he must return to 
England at the earliest possible moment. He re-entered Eton in October 
1942, after flying to England, and in February 1943 was nominated for

enthusiastic part in all the activities of the School, becoming especially 
proficient at cricket. For two years he was a member of the first cricket 
team and also played on Bigside football and hockey, winning second 
team colours in both these sports. He left the School from the Fifth Form, 
entering the firm of Osier and Hammond, Investment Brokers, Toronto. 
After a serious illness he decided to practice farming and attended O.A.C. 
in Guelph. He later returned to the business world and after gaining 
experience in New York and London, joined a firm in Montreal. 

He received his commission in the 48th Highlanders of Canada at 
the outbreak of war and went overseas with his regiment in 1940. He 
trained in England until 1943 when he took part in the invasion of Sicily. 
While serving as a platoon commander in "D" Company of his regiment, 
he was killed in action on July 25, 1943, when his men came under heavy 
machine gun fire during an attack. 

The action is described by one of his men as follows: "All the way 
up the coast his Company, with "B" Company, had been taking the 
major part of the fighting for the battalion, being the leading Companies 
in most of the attacks and especially when the objective appeared to 
promise tough going and hard fighting. In the action on the night of 
Sunday, July 25, "B" Company attacked a ridge and "D" Company a 
high hill overlooking the ridge. They both came under enemy fire and 
when they got to the top they came up against very heavy machine gun 
cross fire. Bobs' Company suffered many casualties and Bobs himself 
got a blast from a machine gun which killed him instantly". In the press 
report of the action it was stated that he deliberately drew the fire of 
the enemy in order to protect another party of his men.

PAGE, W. D. 

Page, Walter David (Master, '38-'40), was born March 7, 1918, in 
London, England. He attended Lake Lodge School, Grimsby, later going 
on to Bishop's College School at Lennoxville. A brilliant student, he 
graduated from Bishop's University in 1936 with an honours degree in 
mathematics at the age of eighteen. He was also a fine athlete, and 
represented his school and college in rugby, hockey and cricket. After 
graduation, he was in business for two years and in September 1938 
joined the staff of the Junior School. He instituted the Junior School 
Press and encouraged acting among the small boys by writing and 
directing several short plays. He was also very fond of music and sang 
in the Choir both as a boy at school and as a Master at T.C.S. 

He enlisted in the R.C.A.F. in July 1940 and received his wings in 
March 1941. Going overseas in July of the same year, he was attached 
to a bomber training squadron in Scotland, and later to 214 (R.A.F.) 
Squadron, Bomber Command, being promoted to Flight Sergeant in 
March 1942 and to Warrant Officer at the beginning of the following 
month. He made many raids over Germany and occupied France as 
second pilot and became commander of his crew in March 1942 on pro- 
motion to Flight Sergeant. During the historic raid on Lubeck his plane 
was first over the target. On April 1 he was promoted to Warrant Officer. 
On the 15th he was reported killed in air operations over the Continent

PEACOCK, J. W. F. 

Peacock, John William Frederick C35-'38), was born March 9, 1920, 
at Montreal, Quebec. At T.C.S. he was a good student and showed much 
skill at games, in his final year winning first team colours in football, 
hockey and cricket. He was also a member of the first squash team. 
Because of his sound character and leadership ability he was made a 
Senior in 1937 and soon afterwards was appointed a Prefect. From T.C.S. 
he entered McGill University and was a member of the C.O.T.C., and a 
reserve officer in the Black Watch (R.H.R.) of Canada. 

He was commissioned Pilot Officer in the radio branch of the 
R.C.A.F. in September 1941 and went overseas in October of the same 
year. He qualified for his Navigator wing while attached to the R.C.A.F., 
and late in 1942 began flying operationally with 409 (R.C.A.F.) Squadron, 
making sorties over the Continent in Boulton-Paul Defiants, Beaufighters 
and later Mosquitoes. He was promoted Flight Lieutenant early the 
following summer and began a navigation leaders course, at the con- 
clusion of which he returned to his squadron. He was Mentioned in 
Despatches in the 1944 New Year's Honours List and continued on 
operations until his aircraft was shot down on August 7, 1944. While 
patrolling over the Normandy beachhead about ten miles southeast of 
Bayeux, his aircraft was attacked by German fighters and he could not 
get clear before he crashed. At the time of his death, he was officially 
credited with destroying five enemy planes and with damaging a sixth. 

Wing Commander Beveridge, his Commanding Officer, wrote of 
his death as follows: "I cannot express in full the deep regret that my 
entire Squadron feel at this moment. I speak with particular feeling 
since I was with John until the last moment and it was he who saved 
my life by pushing me free from the aircraft, as we came down out of 
control. We were on patrol over the Beach Head during the early hours 
of August 7 when we were suddenly attacked by fighters. John gave 
me the warning as they attacked; but before I could take avoiding action, 
we had been hit and were out of control our tail had been cut off. We 
immediately set about getting clear of the aircraft in the conventional 

Page Forty-five 



manner which is out of the side. Apparently John was having difficulty, 
for when I asked him what was wrong, he only replied that he couldn't 
jettison the door. Accordingly I immediately jettisoned the hatch in the 
roof directly over my head and tried to get clear; however, I found my- 
self stuck half-in, half-out at the last minute, not being able to clear 
myself through my own efforts. I suddenly came clear. The only ex- 
planation I can give is that John, unable to get his hatch open, decided 
that one of us at least should get out and came to my rescue, unselfishly 
abandoning hope for himself, and pushed me from behind. My parachute 
opened just in time, as I hit the ground a minute later. Thus John had 
no time to follow me, and was killed instantly when the aircraft crashed 
about fifteen yards from me."

visited the School and spoke to the boys in an unforgettable way about 
his first experiences as a fighter pilot. After a period of duty in Quebec 
he was posted overseas for a second tour of operations. He was serving 
in a fighter squadron providing protection for the invasion of the Con- 
tinent when he was reported missing over the Caen-Falaise-Argentan

of Engineering at McGill University in 1935 and in 1938 left to obtain a 
year's practical experience in the Sullivan Mines at Kimberley, B.C. 

Returning to McGill for a year in 1940, he joined the R.C.N.V.R. 
in September of that year and was called out on active service in 
January 1941. He received his commission as Sub-Lieutenant the same

SCHOLFIELD, G. P. 

Scholfield, George Percival C17-'24), was born October 9, 1906, at 
Toronto, Ontario. Entering T.C.S. in 1917, he was one of the first members 
of the Junior School. Throughout his seven years at the School, he showed 
himself to be a keen student and a good athlete. His chief sports interest 
was football and for two years he was a member of the first team, being 
awarded a Distinction Cap in his final year. He was also a Gymnast, 
winning his colours on the first Gym. eight. For several years he was 
a dependable member of the Choir. In his final year he was a most 
capable Head Prefect and he won the coveted Bronze Medal for showing 
"steady perseverance in courtesy, industry and integrity". He entered 
University College, Toronto, where he graduated four years later. Going 
into business he became a partner in the firm of Traviss, Scholfield and 
Company. 

He was called out on active service at the beginning of the war 
with the Royal Regiment of Canada and went overseas shortly after- 
wards. He became second-in-command of his regiment and conducted 
himself most courageously in the attack on Dieppe. He was in command 
of the first wave of the battalion when it attacked at Puits at dawn on 
the 19th of August, 1942. Casualties in the infantry were very heavy 
as a result of the withering fire at close range from well prepared 
positions behind fixed barbed wire defences. From the initial landing 
until toward the close of the action, the German defences kept up a 
heavy concentrated fire on all beaches, consisting of artillery, mortars, 
light and heavy machine guns down to snipers, all of which was made 
far more effective by the shingle beach acting as shrapnel when hit. 
Major Scholfield led his troops gallantly from the landing crafts across 
the bullet-riddled beach to the enemy's first line of defence. In the 
initial stages of the battle he was mortally wounded, but still continued 
to encourage and direct his men until he lost consciousness. 

He was reported missing and on October 22, a letter from a brother 
officer, held prisoner-of-war, stated that he had died of wounds in a 
German hospital at Morancez, France, early in September of that year. 

Page Fifty-three 



His Colonel wrote of him as follows: "I think you know what wr 
thought of George as a soldier and as a man. He was a fine example 
at all times. He was conscientious to the last degree and never was 
there a more loyal officer. He was adored by his men and quite rightly 
so as there was nothing he would not do for them if it was within his 
power. He did a magnificent job at all times ?nd went about his work 
with determination and a keen sense of duty. The more difficult the 
task, the more determined he was to win through he never quit. I am 
proud indeed that I hao. the privilege of being associated with such a 
perfect gentleman and good soldier".

STRATHY, G. H. K. 

Strathy, George Henry Kirkpatrick C29-'34), was born February 13, 
1918, at Sopington, England. He came to the Junior School from Toronto 
in September 1929 and immediately began to distinguish himself in his 
studies, passing six papers of his Junior Matriculation with high honours 
even before entering the Senior School. His brilliant academic record, 
however, did not prevent him from taking an active part in games and 
he obtained his colours for Middleside cricket where he excelled as a 
bowler. In his leisure moments, he conceived, edited and printed a 
School Sheet, the Trinity Tatler, which evoked widespread interest. In 
1934, he obtained his Honour Matriculation with first class honours in 
four mathematics and two science papers. He was Head Boy and Chan- 
cellor's Prize Man, won the Jubilee Exhibition and the Governor General's 
Medal for Mathematics, and was also awarded the Professor William 
Jones Scholarship in Mathematics at Trinity College. 

As he had barely reached his sixteenth year, and was considered 
too young for university, he was sent to an English Public School and 
at Charterhouse he continued to show brilliant promise of scholarship. 
In 1933, in the Ontario Upper School examinations, he won the First 
Edward Blake Scholarship and the Second Edward Blake Scholarship 
at the University of Toronto, as well as the Wellington Scholarship in 
Mathematics at Trinity College, three of the most coveted Scholarships 
at the University. He entered Trinity College in September 1936 and 
throughout his University career he won distinction after distinction; he 
regularly headed his first class honour group in the Mathematics and 
Physics course winning some five scholarships; he was honoured in his 
final year for distinguished service to the University; and he was a 
member of the University of Toronto mathematics team of three which 
won the Putnam award in competition with some sixty other universities 
on the North American continent. 

When the British Admiralty called for volunteers of exceptional 
capacity in mathematics and physics, he was one of the first to offer his 
services. He received his commission as a Sub-Lieutenant in the R.C.N.V.R. 
in May 1940 and after special and secret training was posted to H.M.S. 
Ajax, then in the Mediterranean. On the morning of October 12, 1940, 
his ship encountered two squadrons of enemy warships and immediately 
attacked, sinking three of them. Pat Strathy was killed instantly by the 
only shell which hit the Ajax during the engagement.

of his general leadership ability as well as his steady dependability ho 
was made a Senior, performing his duties capably. On entering McGill, 
he elected to specialize in engineering; he became a member of the 
Kappa Alpha fraternity. 

In February 1943 he enlisted in the R.C.A.F. and received his 
elementary training in Ontario and the west. He was selected for train- 
ing as pilot and was completing his course at Uplands when his plane

WIGLE, F. E. 

Wigle, Frederick Ernest C29-'32), was born July 11, 1913, at 
Hamilton, Ontario. He came to T.C.S. in September 1929 when the Senior 
School was at Woodstock and left from t'lc Sixth Form in June 1932. 
Throughout his career at T.C.S. he revealed exceptional qualities of mind 
and heart which led to his being awarded the Bronze Medal for "steady 
perseverance in courtesy, industry and integrity" an honour he shared 
with the Head Prefect of his year. Because of his general standing in 
the School and unusual leadership ability, he was appointed a Prefect. 
He took an active part in sports, being one of the strongest football and 
hockey players ever to play on T.C.S. teams; he was also a member of 
the second eleven in cricket. Entering McGill, he did well in his course 
and starred on the University football and hockey teams. He was picked 
for the Eastern Canada all star football team. After graduation, he 
entered business in Montreal and in 1937 married Miss Margaret Willmot 
Holton of Hamilton. 

He received his commission in the Armoured Corps in May 1941 
and was promoted to Captain on proceeding overseas in November of 
the same year. In England he was selected for a staff course, and in 
September 1943 was promoted to Major, later being appointed GSO 1, 
4 Armoured Division. In February 1945, he was appointed to the com- 
mand of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada with the 
rank of Lieutenant-Colonel and in March he was awarded the O.B.E. "for 
gallantry, efficiency and devotion to duty". He fought his battalion all 
through the Hochwald battle and then led his men across the Rhine. It 
was during this period that he was awarded the D.S.O. for complete 
disregard for personal safety in going forward to rally and inspire his 
men under heavy German counter attacks. 

The official citation reads in part as follows: "By 4 a.m. all objec- 
tives had been taken. From 6 a.m. on, the enemy shelled and mortared 
the area incessantly and during the ensuing twenty-four hours counter- 
attacked eight times with infantry and Tiger tanks. During this time. 
Lt.-Col. Wigle was constantly forward with his leading companies, en- 
Page Sixty 



couraging his men and co-ordinating their defences. Despite heavy 
casualties, he directed the fire so effectively that the final attack was 
driven off with great loss to the enemy. There can be no doubt that the 
skill, initiative and daring displayed by this officer was directly respon- 
sible for the success of this difficult operation. His courage was an 
inspiration to all ranks under his command". 

On April 12, he had moved his tactical headquarters into a building 
in a little town which he had captured west of Bremen and had one 
officer and ten other ranks with him. At four in the morning, another 
battalion drove eighty Germans from a strong point a mile and a half 
south of the town. They retreated to this town arriving about seven 
a.m. Half of the men in the building were on the ground floor and half 
on the second floor. The Germans closed in, surrounding the house, and 
fired at point blank range. Colonel Wigle was killed instantly while 
attempting to reach his men on the second floor. 

After his death, he was Mentioned in Despatches for gallant and 
distinguished service on staff before his appointment to the command 
of the Argylls.

"Throughout the Scheldt opera-

Regiment, Royal Canadian Artil 
lery, proved himself a cool cour- 
ageous and astute forward observa- 
tion officer. In the closing phases

assisted the foremost platoons of 
our infantry in their difficult task 
of clearing the enemy from the 
dyke country from Biervliet to 
Knocke. On innumerable occasions 



under heavy shelling and mortar- 
ing, Captain Kerrigan directed the 
fire of his guns effectively upon the 
enemy defences, enabling the in- 
fantry he supported to reach their 
objectives. In frequent locations 
where observation was very diffi- 
cult, with gallant disregard for his 
own life, he repeatedly exposed 
himself to enemy machine gun and 
mortar fire in order to ascertain 
the enemy's positions and to neu- 
tralize or destroy them. His excel- 
lent example throughout has been 
an inspiration to the men and con- 
tributed greatly to the taking of 
many objectives with low casualties 
to the infantry he supported."

regiment in Holland, Belgium and 
Germany. He was wounded in 
February 1945 in the Reichswald 
and again very seriously in March 
just after crossing the Rhine. 
He was awarded the M.C. in Janu- 
ary 1946 with the following cita- 
tion: "Lieutenant LeMesurier, on 
loan to the British Army since 
October 1944, has given exemplary 
service to the 5th Queen's Own 
Cameron Highlanders. His devotion 
to duty, great courage, initiative 
and leadership have been an in- 
spiration to all who knew him. 
Whenever there has been a dan- 
gerous and unpleasant task, he has 
volunteered for it and carried it 
through with skill and daring. As 
commander of the Battalion Scout 
Platoon, until he was seriously 
wounded after crossing the Rhine, 
he has always led his men with 
great enthusiasm and given them 
his greatest confidence in all their 
difficult operations. South of the 
Maas, in October, Lieutenant Le- 
Mesurier led ten patrols and raids 
against the enemy positions in the 
woods near Best. On one of the 
fighting patrols, Lieutenant Le 
Mesurier met strong machine gun 
and grenade opposition from an 
enemy strongpoint at thirty yards 



range. Under withering fire and 
with grenades being thrown at him 
from three sides, he charged the 
nearest post and personally killed 
the two machine gunners in it. The 
remaining enemy in the vicinity 
scattered and fled. Again crossing 
the Zig Canal bridgehead, he show- 
ed tho same bravery and his patrol 
accounted for twenty enemy snipers 
and machine gunners. In the 
Reichswald in February, whilst 
commanding a platoon, he, owing 
to his sten gun jamming, killed two 
of the enemy with his only remain- 
ing weapon, a shovel. His leader- 
ship, personal bravery and skill 
have saved many casualties and 
have been a great contribution to 
the many successes the battalion 
has had. His example throughout 
the campaign has been superb."

McCLOSKEY, P. H. 

McCloskey, P. H. C29-'33), was 
commissioned in the R.C.E. in 
March 1942 and served with the 2nd 
Field Company as Lieutenant. He 
went overseas in March 1943 and 
took part in the invasion of the 
Continent serving from D-Plus Two 
in France, Belgium, Holland and 
Germany until the end of hostilities. 
He was awarded the M.C. in March 
1945 for distinguished service in 
the Battle for the Hochwald in Ger 
many. His citation reads as follows: 
"During the advance of First Cana- 
dian Army to the Rhine, 4 Canadian 
Infantry Brigade, on 2 March, 1945, 
was ordered to seize the northern 
part of the Hochwald Forest and 
thus control the vital east-west road 
through the woods. The enemy, 
appreciating the strategical value 
of this route, attempted to deny us 
access to it by blowing three large 
craters in the road at the western 
edge of the forest. Each crater was 
blown by burying and detonating 
pairs of 500 pound bombs. Lieu- 
tenant McCloskey, 2 Canadian Field 
Company, Royal Canadian En- 
gineers, with a sapper platoon and 
one bulldozer under command was 
detailed to open this route for 
vehicles of the assault battalion and 
subsequent divisional traffic. Hav- 
ing personally recced the position, 
this officer led his men forward 
close upon the heels of the attack- 
ing infantry men and commenced 
work. Completely contemptuous of 
a bitter battle being waged two to 
five hundred yards from his posi- 
tion he quickly devised a temporary 



route which permitted the forward 
flow of urgently required battle 
supplies and the evacuation of 
many wounded men. The enemy, 
becoming aware of what was 
transpiring laid in a mortar con- 
centration on these craters, the 
equal ol which is rarely experienced 
in operations. Through hours of 
the most intense fire Lieutenant 
McCloskey refused to waver from 
his task and kept his men available 
to utilize every lull in the mortar- 
ing. Always the first to emerge 
from cover and the last to take 
shelter in the bitterest periods he 
set an example of heroism and per- 
severance which completely infect- 
ed all who worked with him. On 
one occasion when it became im 
possible to remain above ground, he 
noticed six men taking inadequate 
cover by the roadside. Completely 
disregarding his personal welfare 
he emerged from cover, worked his 
way out to these men and led them 
back to a more substantial trench. 
Even when a fresh sapper party 
was brought in to relieve his 
original crew, this officer deliberate- 
ly chose to remain at his post. For 
fifteen hours he stayed at the site, 
subjected to most harrowing fire. 
He refused to spare himself until 
this section of the route was suit- 
able for any subsequent traffic. In 
completing an almost impossible 
task, Lieutenant McCloskey empha- 
tically contributed to the success of 
a most important operation and 
displayed gallantry, tenacity and 
magnificent leadership worthy of 
the highest tradition of the Cana- 
dian Army".

following is a partial account of the 
circumstances under which he was 
awarded the George Cross, as it 
appeared in the London Daily Tele- 
graph on December 18, 1940: "He 
was engaged in clearing debris 
when a member of the Home Guard 
told him that a big bomb which had 
fallen in the vicinity had failed to 
explode. He inspected the bomb, 
decided it was in much too dan- 
gerous a position to be left there, 
and obtained an army lorry and a 
length of cable. After fastening 
the cable round the missile, 2nd 
Lieut. Patton sat on the running- 
board of the lorry to watch what 
happened while the bomb was 
dragged behind the vehicle to a 
field. It was decided that it would 
be best to dump the bomb in an old 
crater. After careful manoeuvring 



it was deposited gently in the hole. 
2nd Lieut. Patton, an expert in 
chemical engineering, at that time 
knew nothing of the technique of

tenant Rawlinson, Troop Leader of 
the Support Troop, "B" Squadron, 1 
Canadian Armoured Car Regiment 
(Royal Canadian Dragoons), on 30 
August, 1944, was given the task of 
finding a crossing over the river 
Foglia in an area near Borgo San 
Maria. This officar was first across 
the river in the face of heavy mor- 
tar and machine gun fire and per- 
sonally organized a defensive 
bridgehead which was immediately 
strongly counter-attacked by the 
enemy. This attack was repulsed 
after very hard fighting during 
which Lieutenant Rawiinson dis- 
played courage and leadership of 
the highest order and without which 
a difficult situation might have be- 
come critical. The advance was 
resumed. On 17 September, 1944, his 
troop was given the task of clearing 
the enemy in the area of the rail- 
road track from the River Melo to 
the River Marano, in Riccione. Up- 
on reaching the Marano, Lieutenant 
Rawlinson saw that the enemy was 
not yet consolidated on the opposite 
bank of the river. He led his troop 
across this dangerous obstacle in 
the face of very heavy mortar and 
machine gun fire. The enemy im- 
mediately counter-attacked after a 



heavy concentration of mortar fire 
and inflicted seven casualties on 
Lieutenant Rawlinson's troop after 
fierce hand to hand fighting. Al- 
though twice wounded and weak 
from loss of blood, Lieutenant 
Rawlinson remained in the fore- 
front of the battle for half an hour. 
By his great courage and skill, he 
rallied his troop and under cover 
of smoke, he evacuated all casual- 
ties. By this time, he was on the 
verge of collapse from exhaustion 
and wounds but he extricated the 
remainder of the troop, and remain- 
ed until all his men had been with- 
drawn to cover on the south side of 
the river before permitting a medi- 
cal orderly to evacuate him. By his 
courageous leadership, drive and 
initiative, this officer was largely 
instrumental in forcing the enemy 
to withdraw later in the day, thus 
securing the right flank of three 
Greek Mountain Brigade."

three days a very large number of 
transport vehicles were attacked, of 
which 127 were set on fire and a

manding Officer of one of the 
Assault Battalions, Lieut.-Colonel 
Spragge landed immediately behind 
his leading Companies at Bernieres- 
Sur-Mer and continued to direct his 
Battalion from among the forward 
troops during the advance inland 
until the capture of the Brigade's 
final objective in the evening of 
D-Day. He then re-organized his 
Battalion on his right. After the 
initial assault, progress was slow 
and his Battalion was ordered to 
push on with all haste in order to 
ensure that the high ground which 
was the final objective was secured 
before dark. That this operation 
was carried out was largely due to 
the personal drive of this Officer. 
On June 11, 1944, when his Bat- 
talion was supporting an Armoured 
Attack, this Officer personally 



accompanied his two leading Com- 
panies. Strong enemy resistance 
broke up this attack, during which 
one of the Companies suffered very 
heavily. By a quick decision made 
under heavy fire, Lieut.-Colonel 
Spragge was able to manoeuvre the 
remainder of his force and success- 
fully carry out his new plan. 
Throughout the first day's fighting 
and in this subsequent action Lieut.- 
Colonel Spragge displayed marked 
courage, coolness and determina 
tion, and by his leadership ensured 
the successful carrying out of the 
tasks given to his Battalion. His 
actions throughout were an ex- 
ample to all."

que concerning the award of his 
D.F.C. reads as follows: "Covering 
the air attack on Morotai, as Yank 
landing barges scraped ashore on 
the Jap-held island, Lieut. Taylor 
and his crew members of a Catalina 
Flying boat, observed two fighter 
pilots floating in the water between 
Morotai and nearby Halmahera 
Island, where they had been shot 



down. Enemy gun positions were on 
one side of the fliers, while barge- 
mounted machine guns kept up an 
incessant cross fire on the other 
side. In spite of no fighter protec- 
tion, a choppy sea making the land- 
ing dangerous, and Jap batteries 
opening up as the plane approached, 
the crew set the ship down within 
100 feet of one pilot. The rescue 
was made in a few minutes but the 
second pilot was killed by machine 
gun fire before the plane got to 
him." 

The citation reads as follows: 
"During the entire operation the 
rescue aircraft was subjected to in- 
cessant enemy barrage which dam- 
aged it severely. The outstanding 
courage and devotion to duty dis- 
played by these crew members 
under hazardous conditions are 
worthy of the highest commenda- 
tion. Lieut. Taylor, who escaped 
uninjured from the daring rescue, 
has flown more than 75 rescue mis- 
sions with the 'Snafu Snatchers', 
13th A.A.F. Rescue unit."

was Mentioned in Despatches for 
his part in the Battle of Crete. A 
signal from the British Admiralty

following award for Battle of 



Crete: Donald Mackenzie Waters, 
Mentioned in Despatches. Midship- 
man Waters, in the two and one 
half years in which he has been in 
the Navy, has logged more hours 
of experience and excitement than 
many seafaring men have seen in a 
lifetime of service. Some months 
ago the British cruiser in which he 
was serving in the Mediterranean 
was torpedoed. No sooner was he 
transferred to a second cruiser than 
it was torpedoed in turn, this time 
in the Battle of Crete. Waters' diary 
is not available to describe the 
dramatic incidents that accom- 
panied the rescue of his ship's com- 
pany, but the grim defense of Crete 
in which he took part is fairly well 
known from other sources. It was 
during these hectic days that, by 
some act of cool courage and initia- 
tive, he earned his Mention in 
Despatches."

who served in the South African War and the First World War,

in time of war. 

It is important to remember that all T.C.S. Boys who en- 
listed in the South African War, the First World War, and the

All the Old Boys who enlisted in three wars were members 
of the Cadet Corps when they were at the School. In 1936 the 
Corps, under Army supervision, became affiliated with a squa- 
dron of the Royal Canadian Air Force; the T.C.S. Cadet Corps 
was the first Cadet Corps in the English speaking world to be 
attached to an Air Force unit. In 1948 the Corps became an Air 
Cadet Corps. 



Page Two Hundred and Forty-three 



THE SCHOOL AT PORT HOPE AND THE 
SECOND WORLD WAR 

T.C.S. was the first School to institute a course of military 
studies for all Senior School boys. Beginning in October 194i. 
it has been continued ever since and has proved of much value. 
The following subjects have been studied: Signalling (Buzzers, 
Lamps, Flags), Map Reading, First Aid, Air Navigation, Sea 
Navigation, Theory of Flight, Internal Combustion Engines, 
Meteorology, Knots and Lashings, Aircraft Recognition, Ski 
Patrol Tactics, Air Raid Precautions, Bren Gun, Musketry, HE36 
Hand Grenade, 2 inch Mortar, Small Arms training (Rifle), 
Small Arms training (Pistol), Fieldcraft, Camouflage, Life- 
saving, Organization of Army, War gases, Airmanship, Browning 
Gun. 



The Cadet Corps, first organized in 1865 by a Waterloo vet- 
eran and carried on since then, won the Imperial Challenge Shield 
for shooting in 1944 in competition with some eight hundred 
other Schools in the Empire. 

For five successive years the Corps has come first in Canada 
in the same competition. 



During the war, special bursaries were given to the sons of 
men on active service when such assistance was requested. 



One hundred and five boys from English Schools were 
educated at T.C.S. after war was declared. Where necessary, the 
Governing Body postponed the payment of fees for such boys. 



The School sent "The Record" to all Old Boys on Active 
Service six times a year during the war, free of charge. Over- 
seven hundred pages of Old Boys' News were printed during 
these years. 



Parcels of food and packages of cigarettes were sent regu- 
larly to Old Boys overseas and in prison camps, either directly 
or through the Red Cross. 



Masters and boys contributed some eleven thousand dollars 
to War Funds. 



In school work, the Sixth Forms of 1942-43, and 1943-44 
obtained the best records in our history in the Upper School or 
Senior Matriculation examinations, and a record not equalled by 
any other School in the Province. 

Page Two Hundred and Forty-four 



AVE ATQUE VALE 

To our Founder and all those closely associated 
with our beginning; to our Headmasters and Masters 
who have cherished the School and have given so 
much of their lives in its service; to our Governors 
who have lent themselves selflessly in the promotion 
of our welfare; to all the boys who through their 
happy and brave natures, their diligence and affec- 
tionate loyalty, their gallantry and sacrifice in time 
of war, have shaped for us fine traditions and strong 
character; to all those our kind friends who valued 
highly our work and sought in every way to assist 
us; to all these we give our deep and humble thanks, 
pledging ourselves to be faithful to the noble heritage 
which they, in their strength and goodness, have 
nourished and protected for us.
