From Andy Pay's research into the Marquis de Ruvigny' s Roll of Honour the following:

Volume 1, Part 1 , Page 150 - GEORGE, Ernest Frederick, Corporal , number 51, A Company, 8th Battalion (90th Winnipeg Rifles), 2nd Brigade, Canadian Expeditionary Force.

Eldest son of Arthur Atherton George of Leverington, near Wisbech, by his wife Sarah, sister of Captain Thomas Elson-Ivey, 1st Oxfordshire and Buckingham L.I. (taken prisoner at Kut)and dau of Samuel Ivey, of Bristol. Born Leverington co. Cambridge23-9-1889, educated church school, wisbech. Was employed for five years with Messrs Dawbarn & Sons, Wisbech, went to Winnipeg, Canada in April 1912, and worked on the Canadian Pacific Railroad, volunteered on the outbreak of war and joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Came over with the first contingent in nov 1914, trained at Valcartier camp, Quebec and Salisbury, went to France 18-2-1915 and was reported missing after the heavy fighting at Ypres 22 to 24-4-1915.

On this occasion the 8th Battalion , commanded by Lieut-Col Lispett held the extreme left of the brigade position at the most critical moment. The Battalion was expelled from the trenches early on friday morning (23rd April) by an emission of poisonous gas, but recovering in three quaters of an hour, it counter-attacked, re took the trenches it had abandoned, and bayoneted the enemy; and after the third brigade had been forced to retire, Lieut-Col Lispett held his position , though his left was in the air, until two British Regiments filled the gap on saturday night.

It would seem George was wounded and taken prisoner, for according to a postcard received from Corporal W.S. Poser of the same battalion (himself a prisoner) George died of wounds or gas poisoning, in the red cross hospital at Roulers, 26-4-1915.

He was unmarried, his younger brother private John Robert George, served with th first Northamptonshire Regiment in France aug 1914 to march 1915 and is now (1916) with the third battalion in Gillingham.
