F. W. Bradford has paid the extreme sacrifice, a sacrifice for which M.A.C. will mourn for many years to come.
In the year 1913 Bradford entered college. He was a regular student, attending every term until he enlisted with the 196th Battalion in 1915. He left Canada as a lance corporal. After reaching England, he took an officer’s training course and was when he was killed, a lieutenant.
He scarce had need to doff his pride or slough the dross of earth –
In simpleness and gentleness and honor and clean mirth.
