Text from article:
Pte. Alfred Steggles, who was killed in the battle of Passchendaele, (Nov. 11, 1917) held special significance to a youthful Agnes McVittie. A native of England, Alf came to Wallaceburg and lived with the McVittie’s who looked upon him as a son. His death hit them hard.
Amongst Alfred’s personal belongings retrieved from his clothing following his death, was a cherished photo of little Agnes McVittie, the same person who has shared her memories with us this week.
