Bernard Joseph Slattery

Title

Bernard Joseph Slattery

Description

Lieutenant, died 10 October 1944
Several other units were involved in the fierce struggle for the Leopold Canal one of which was the Regina Rifles of Canada. Lieutenant Bernard Joseph Slattery had just joined the Reginas after serving with the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa. He was taken on strength in the field with the Reginas on 10 October 1944 and killed on the same day. He was the younger brother of Timothy Slattery QC, the man who wrote Loyola of Montreal, the book which had made it clear to me why those orderly maple trees lined either side of Sherbrooke Street facing Loyola. Bernard Slattery, 29, B.A., is buried in Plot VII, Row H, Grave 5 at Adegem.
