Minister of Militia and Defence for Canada


Dear Mr. Broome,

I desire to express to you my very sincere sympathy in the recent decease of your son,
No. 44095, Pte. George Albert Charles Broome, C.E.F.,
who in sacrificing his life at the front in action with the enemy, has rendered the highest services of a worthy citizen.

The heavy loss which you and the Nation have sustained would indeed be depressing were it not redeemed by the knowledge that the brave comrade for whom we mourn performed his duties fearlessly and well as became a good soldier, and gave his life for the great cause of Human Liberty and the Defence of the Empire.

Again extending to you in your bereavement my condolence and heartfelt sympathy.

I am,

Yours faithfully

S.C. Mewburn

Minister of Militia and Defence for Canada
