We Remember

OPMF88 years ago today...
Chief John W. Burdon serving with the Strathroy Police

Chief Burdon had received a call at approximately 4 o\'clock reporting chicken thieves had been active again in the area. With the aid of a neighbor as his chauffeur, the Chief drove out to Hickory Corners then returned back towards Strathroy. Chicken thieves had been particularly active in the Caradoc and Adelaide Township on the past Friday night. On the return trip to Strathroy the Chief noticed a truck approaching. Ordering his driver to slow down the Chief leaped from the car attempting to jump onto the truck, missing it he fell and struck his head on the asphalt. He was rushed to hospital but later died from his injuries.
