CASUALTY OF WAR
15 FEBRUARY 1917

Died on service, Private MATTHEW LYNN, (23), 14th Battalion Canadian Infantry – Theatre of war, France and Flanders – son of Mr and Mrs James Lynn, 39 Townhead, Stevenston.

The Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald subsequently reported: -

“Mr and Mrs James Lynn, 39 Townhead, Stevenston, have received official information of the death of their son, Private Matthew Lynn, Canadians, who was killed in action on 15 February, 1917.

Private Lynn left Stevenston for Canada about four years ago, and was employed at the Beloeil Explosive Works when war broke out. He enlisted in Canada, and came to this country last November, in which month he visited his parents at Stevenston.

Private Lynn was 23 years of age, and had many friends in Stevenston, by whom he was much liked for his sterling qualities. His death is much regretted and there is a wide expression of sympathy for the bereaved family.”
