The Calgary News Telegram, 27th April, contains the news of Sergt. Mundell’s death on 17th April, 1915. He, along with four others, was killed instantaneously by a shell at the famous attack on Hill 60.
“He was the first to bring distinction to this City, and was the first man, in the West, to be recommended for the V.C. for conspicuous bravery in the battlefield.”
“Day by day contemplate your country’s power till you grow full of passionate love for her. And, when you realize her greatness, remember that it was the dead who won it for you.” – Thucydides.
