Additional Biographical Information:

Frank Reginald Hasse was a 24 year old immigrant farmer from Yorkshire, England, who enlisted at Wabamun, Alberta in January 1915. If the Bells were neighbours of the Whitings at Wolfe, Saskatchewan, Hasse may have worked as a farm labourer for them before getting a farm of his own.
