Extra informatie

Private Adams Joseph Reginald was part of the 8st Bn. Canadian Infantry ( Manitoba Regiment ). Around the 8th of November 1917 his battalion arrived at Meetcheele to relieve the 13th Bn. Canadian Infantry. During the next few days the battalion moved on to the Mosselmarkt and the Green Line ( the objective ), a semicircle surrounding Passchendaele and some of its neighbourhoods. The battle ended the 10th of November 1917 and marks the end of the Third Battle of Ypres.
After the battles, starting from the 13th of November, the battalion moved on to various places in Nord-Pas-de-Calais ( France ).
We presume that, during the attacks of the 9th and 10th as described above, Pte. Adams got wounded by a shrapnel. On the 16th of November 1917 he was taken into No. 26 General Hospital in Étaples ( France ) for being dangerously ill, which might be caused by infected wounds. Unfortunately he died of his wounds on the 26th of November 1917 at the hospital in Étaples. After the war he was buried at Étaples Military Cemetery.
