Memorial Cross to Pte.Vincent, Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal

GVI (C.120763 PTE.E.VINCENT). Naming is officially engraved. Very fine. Accompanied by copies of his Attestation Paper and Service Records. Footnote: Eugene Vincent, born April 23rd 1921 at Note Dame du Lous, Quebec, worked as a labourer prior to enlisting March 1943 at Kingston. Noted to be strong looking, quiet and perhaps slightly dull, Vincent spoke only French, and had difficulty passing basic training due to language difficulty. It is also noted that he did not like the Army because of the language difficulty. According to his examination, he attended school until grade 4 and then proceeded to work in the lumber bush for seven years. At this time, he was reserved with limited interests due to environment, complained of common colds, bad ankles, and sore eyes. He was rather nervous, easily startled, and easily disturbed. As a member of the Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal, was reported wounded on July 25th 1944. Shortly after his recovery, he was recorded as Killed in Action on September 17th 1944. His is buried in Belgium.
