Missing at Ypres - Pte.Stringer, 3rd Can Infantry

1914-15 Star (10073 PTE. C.R. STRINGER. 3/CAN:INF:); British War and Victory Medals (10073 L. CPL. C.R. STRINGER. 3-CAN.INF.). Naming is officially impressed on the trio. A well executed and thin clear coat on all three, better than very fine. Accompanied by the Memorial Plaque (CHARLES RICHARD STRINGER) with previous mounting marks on the reverse, plus copies of his Attestation Paper, Service Records and Medical Records. Footnote: Charles Richard Stringer was born on July 31, 1890 in Toronto, Ontario. He signed his Attestation Paper on September 22, 1914 in Valcartier, Quebec, stating that he was not married, that he had no previous military and that his trade was that of Electrotyper. Stringer was serving with the 3rd Canadian Infantry Battalion, Central Ontario Regiment, in France and Belgium, when he went missing and was presumed dead, April 24, 1915, during the Second Battle of Ypres, at the age of 24. He is commemorated on the Menin Gate (Ypres) Memorial, Belgium. His brother, John, was the recipient of his medal group, along with the Memorial Cross and Plaque, as their mother had already passed. The Cross is not included here, as it has been lost to time.
