Died: October 25, 1918
College Times staff confused Private 1st Class Winchell Manchee with his surviving brother, 1st Lieut. Vincent Manchee, in the article which appeared in its Summer 1919 issue.
1st Lieut. V.T. Manchee, Battery D, 315 Field Artillery, American Expeditionary Force, France. V.T. Manchee, was the son of Mr. L. W. Manchee, 605 Huron St., Toronto; when the United States entered the war, enlisted to train in the Reserve Officers Training Corps, Fort Myer, U.S.A. Here he received his commission as 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
After twelve days’ leave he went to Camp Lee, Va., where he trained recruits for about a year. During this time he was promoted to the rank of 1st Lieut. In May 1918, he went overseas, landing at Bordeaux. After training in France, he was sent to the Front in Sept. On Oct. 15 he was sent back to the hospital where he was on the 15th of Nov. When last heard from, he had returned to his battery, where he received notice to take a six weeks’ course in motor-driving. No word has yet been received as to how he met his death. Lieut. Manchee was at U.C.C. from 1907-1910.
