Stanley WALPOLE was a Home Child from England who arrived in Canada in May 1915 & was sent to a St Mary's family (Misses BONIS) to help on a farm. He would have been 16 years old. He wouldn't have been there long as he lied about his age and enlisted in the Canadian Infantry. He was killed in action in Belgium on Jun 13, 1916. He was 17 years old. His name in engraved on the St Mary's Cenotaph. Any information about Stanley WALPOLE's stay at a BONIS family in 1915 would be greatly appreciated.
