FIRST DAY VIMY KIA- 18th Infantry

British War and Victory Medals (401335 A. CPL. B. PANTALL. 18 - CAN.INF.). Naming is officially impressed. Crisp detail, extremely fine. Confirmed killed in action (CWG) 09/04/1917. First day of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.Footnote: Bernard Pantall completed his Attestation Paper under the name of George Symonds, on August 4, 1915, in London, Ontario. He stated his date of birth as June 18, 1894 in Birmingham, England and listed his trade as Labourer. The notes on the reverse of his attestation indicate that he had an appendicitis scar and two tattoos, one of an eagle on his right arm and one that read "Friendship" on his left arm. Not only did he have an alias, it would have been difficult to deny his original identity, if questioned.
