The names of two Dorset men who lost their lives fighting with the Canadian forces in World War I have been added to a war memorial in Dorchester.
Cutt had only just emigrated to Canada when the war broke out and was soon back in Europe with the army of his adopted country. He was killed in 1917 while serving as a corporal with the 47th Battalion, Canadian Infantry.
Quinton was visiting a brother in Canada when he joined up. He was a sapper with the 3rd Tunnelling Company, Canadian Engineers and was killed on 17 September 1917. His name also appears on the Menin Gate in Ypres.
Dorchester World War I historian Brian Bates was contacted by relatives of the two men and helped to ensure their names were added to the 239 already on the town’s Portland stone cenotaph.
