Nota de publicación

In his memoir, Medicine and Duty (University of Calgary Press, 2007) Harold McGill, medical officer for the 31st Battalion, remembers James and William Prove: "There were two Provens in the battalion, brothers, one in C Company and one in A. Both were sergeants. I remember them distinctly as both were exceptionally fine soldiers. Later on in the war, the other brother [William] was also killed in action. Whenever I think of them after so many years I am filled with pity for the mother in her grief at the loss of two such sons."
