Hello, I found a great picture of Victor Gordon Tupper {Gordie} Brother of Reginald Hibbert Tupper. Go too:

http://www.silentcities.co.uk/cemeterye/Ecoivres%20Military%20Cemetery,%20Pas-de-Calais.htm and scroll down to the pictures of the Soldiers.He is the 3rd one.


Here is the Inscription from his grave. I tried to post the pics, but they won't transfer.

{TUPPER, Capt. Victor Gordon M.C. Officer Commanding No.3 Coy 16th Bn Canadian Inf. (Manitoba Regt). Died 9th April 1917. Age 21. Son of The Hon. Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper and Lady Tupper, of Vancouver British Columbia. V. D. 10.}

My mom has a book on him written by Reginald that is about him as a solider in the first world war. Its called Victor Gordon Tupper, a brothers tribute. Has anyone else seen it at all? Just Curious, its a great book. It has some parts written by Reginald but mostly its letters that Gordie wrote home about his life as a soldier and about his wanting to stay in the trenches when his mother wanted him to take a desk position. Also, it has him talking about moving up in the ranks. Also reginald talking about his death on April 9th 1917, when he died at Vimy Ridge. There is also a great picture of the Brothers together. It belonged to my Great Grandfathers sister my moms Aunt Grace or Giggy.
