BIOGRAPHY

R. J. GRIFFIN Second corporal, was a very tall, slimly built man. His service was in every way creditable. His health not the best but was able to serve with the regiment to the end. The only peculiar incident that I remember now about him was the loss of his voice, which he went without for some months. He died December 31, 1902, at Northfield, where he had made his home for several years.
