Time to hon­our this prom­ise

RE: The war hero Hamil­ton for­got (Aug. 2)

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

Movies are made about sto­ried men and women from the Great Wars whose ac­com­plish­ments were as­tound­ing and spec­tac­u­lar.

Hamil­ton’s own Lance Sgt. Earl McAl­lis­ter of the Ar­gyll and Suther­land High­landers of Canada is cer­tainly among their ranks. Let us im­me­di­ately cor­rect this re­gret­table over­sight and un­ful­filled prom­ise by ac­knowl­edg­ing an in­cred­i­ble sol­dier, son, brother and friend while at the same time hon­our­ing his sis­ter’s prom­ise to her fam­ily.

It is the right thing to do. Alice Phillips, Hamil­ton
