Glorious Dead of WWII, University of Toronto

An excellent wall of names commemorates the memory of University of Toronto members killed in World War II.  As there were at most 10,000 staff, students, and professors at the time, this makes the size of the wall all the more significant.

Picking a name off the wall, I looked up C.S.L. Hertzberg who happened to be a Major General.

He received a Military Cross for "conspicuous gallantry" in action in France, and was wounded in Vimy.  He also received a Czechoslovak War Cross for service (for Canada!) in Siberia in WWI.  He died of smallpox contracted while in India in 1944.
