PTE. WALTER SHEBIB
Dies From Wounds
------------------
North Sydney - June 20,
1944 - Mrs. Annie Shebib
well-know Archibald
Avenue resident received
a telegram yesterday
evening stating that
her son, Pte. Walter
Shebib, previously re-
ported wounded in action
on May 20, 1944, had
died on June 19, 1944
as a result of wounds
received in action.

SERVED IN ITALY
---------------------
Pte. Shebib who is 23
years old has been
serving with the North
Nova Scotia Highlanders,
and prior to going to
Italy, had served for
some time in North Africa.
A message received
here last month by his
mother stated that Pte.
Shebib had become seriously
ill May 20, as a result of
shell fragment wounds in the
right thigh and left lower
chest, and a month later
another telegram was received
stating that he had died as a
result of the wounds.
Prior to his enlistment
in the Army he had been associated
with his brother James in the
barbering business. He is well
known throughout the district
and news of his death will be
learned with wide spread regret.
In addition to his mother he
is survived by one sister Lieut.
Nursing Sister Rose Shebib, who is
now serving in Newfoundland and five
brothers, Fred Shebib, serving with
the Army in France; Albert and
Joseph who are associated in the
shoe repairing business here; Jim
Shebib, local barber; and Maurice
Shebib, who recently received an
honourable discharge from the Army
after four years service.
Their many friends on the North-
side and elsewhere join in extending
their sincerest sympathy to members
of the family.
