The list of Georgetown veterans on page 10 was first printed in the The Georgetown Herald in Feb. 1945. The Acton list (above) was printed in The Acton Free Press in April and May 1941 and was pulled from microfilms at the Halton Hills Public Library (Acton branch). In recent years The Independent & Free Press has added names. If you know of veterans omitted please call The Independent & Free Press at 905-873-0301 ext. 245.
