Private Havens Harry Wilfred of the 26th Battalion (New Brunswick) Canadian Infantry (5th Canadian Brigade, 2nd Canadian Division) was killed in action on the 6th of November 1917. He was killed by a concussion from the explosion of a shell, at Passchendaele, at about 8.00 o’ clock on the morning of 6 November 1917.

The 2nd Canadian Division attacked with only one Brigade. The 6th Canadian Brigade advanced towards the village of Passchendaele at 6.00 a.m. By 8.45 a.m. the village and the eastern crest beyond were firmly in Canadian hands. The 5th Canadian Brigade formed the right flank using the 26th Battalion for the purpose.

Harry was killed when his battalion was consolidating the new front line to the right of the Passchendaele Church. He was buried, southeast of Crest Farm. His remains were reinterred in Tyne Cot Cemetery after the war.
