We may have found the second bank Gunner. Driver Edgar Alexander McLennan, regimental #327967, had previous service with 10th Company Field Ambulance before enlisting with the 59th Battery, 15th Brigade Canadian Field Artillery. He attended signalling school and was transferred to 60th Battery, 14th Brigade, Canadian Field Artillery.
He was killed in action 14 September 1917 while repairing breaks in the lines from the gun line to the observation posts. He is interred at Villers Station Cemetery, Pas de Calais, France. He was 20 years old.
There is a discrepancy between the name Edgar Alexander McLennan and Bombardier Cox's recollection as the name being Alexander McDonald McLennan. As well, the newspaper article lists the bank as the "Molson Bank" rather than the Canadian Bank of Commerce. As with all research, more information may be revealed later.
