  • Corporal A. P. Horne, MM; Victoria, British Columbia; born Scotland, 25 Jun 1899; lineman; p.w. Jun 1941. (Source: Borman, C.A. Divisional Signals. p.165.)

    'None knew better than Signals that there was lack of control and often no orders. Nor did any know better than Signals that the island's communication system was built up from nothing into an extensive network of lines and wireless communications in three short weeks. Any impartial examination cannot but reflect credit on those who had the direction of signals communication at Force Headquarters and Divisional Headquarters, and who had the assistance of intrepid men like Bateman, Tweeddale, Laurie, Blair, Horne, Sinton, Baker, Provan, and many others who would be mentioned in this story if space permitted.'
