“Privates Brown, Mackenzie and Scully, three young men who left here with the first contingent as stretcher bearers in connection with the 15th Regiment of this city, have been promoted since leaving Canada. Private Brown is in charge of the medical ward at Salisbury Plains; Private Mackenzie is in the surgical ward, and Private Scully is over the stores. This is indeed an honor for Belleville boys.”
