“This is a case where the authorities should do something more than they are doing.” said a neighbor whose husband returned a few months ago and whose four brothers are in the Imperial service, as she assisted in getting information regarding the home of Corp. Samuel Redman. About a week ago word came that he was dangerously wounded; now he is listed among the dead. Ever since receiving the cable Mrs. Redman have been bedfast. On the door this morning a not was pinned to “Come in.” Corp. Redman was 30 years of age. He enlisted with the “Pals in August 1915. He was a toolmaker by trade and had been employed for years by the Massey-Harris Co. For a short time before enlisting he was with the Faibanks-Morse Co.
