Harry John Bruce
Recently I found the information about Harry who was my Mother's (Annie GWENIFER Bruce). I was very saddened by the loss of a young man immediately he joined the fray. A bank teller who suffered an awful death and was cut down before his life began.
My Mother also lost a brother named for Harry. The younger version was only 7 when he died. Not a lucky name in our family.
RIP and Thank you Great Uncle Harry.
