Pte. T. H. Stinson came of an old U.C.C. family of which no less than eight are to be found in Prof. Young’s “Roll of Pupils of U.C.C.” He was at U.C.C. from 1898-1902. He was a prominent member of the College Football Team. After leaving he entered the Bank of Montreal. He was serving as a private having reverted in rank in order the sooner to get into action. He died of pneumonia in England after being wounded in action in France.

One who knew him well says, “No one could know Tommy without loving him.” He was the son of Mrs. T. H. Stinson of Hamilton, was in his 33rd year, and was serving as a Lieut, in the 205th Battalion when he reverted to Private.
