Commemoration: Lieutenant John Howe

Title

Commemoration: Lieutenant John Howe

Description

John Howe (Loyola 1904) of the 4th Battalion, was killed April 25, 1916. Due to an error, his name was not included on the WW1 War Memorial in the Tower of Merit, nor was a 37th tree planted in his honor. A photo of him appears in the Tower of Merit and, in 2005, the students of Loyola High School planted a tree on Sherbrooke St., just outside the school, in his honor.
