Lemieux, Louis Rodolphe (M.C.)

Lieutenant, Canadian Infantry (Quebec Regiment), 22nd Battalion

Born April 27, 1898
Died August 29, 1918

Son of Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux, M.P., and Berthe Jettie Lemieux, of Ottawa. Born in Montreal. Louis’s father, Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux, was a recipient of the Commandeur de la Legion D’Honneur, France’s highest decoration.

He went overseas as Lieutenant, under Lieut.-Col. Blondin’s command, when scarcely eighteen years of age, and that he conducted himself as a man and a soldier is shown by the fact that he was promoted to a Captaincy on the field, and was recommended for the Military Cross for gallant conduct.
