“Mourned Frankford Soldier Alive. Private Albert Bingham Officially Reported Killed, Was Wounded. There was joy in Frankford when letters arrived from Pte. Albert Bingham, a young Englishman of the 49th Regiment in the second battalion. Private Bingham some weeks ago was officially reported killed, and the letters conveyed the information that he was wounded. And now the casualty list mentions him as follows—’2nd battalion—wounded—Albert Bingham, (previously reported killed) Frankford, Ontario.’ A memorial service for Albert Bingham was recently held in Frankford Methodist church under the auspices of the Oddfellows.”
