Private Walter Colbran

3130414 Private Walter Colbran was born in 1886, there is no attestation paper available in the archives.  I am assuming that he was from the Newmarket area as this is were he is buried and that is were his parents resided, or at least his mother did at the time of his death on February 3, 1918 at the age of 33. A CWGC designation indicates that Private Colbran died as a direct result of his military service. It is not known if he was killed in action or died at a later date.  The last major battle that the Canadians were involved just prior to his death was the Battle of Passchendaele.
