Elgin County Honour Roll
February, about 81 years ago...
February 2nd, 1942
DETAILS: County Constable Harry Fordham was returning from attending a house fire in the Village of Fingal, Elgin County. He was walking east on the sidewalk along Talbot Road which is two blocks west of the main intersection in the village. The speeding west bound car lost control after sideswiping an east bound car on the icy road, jumed the ditch, striking and snapping off a telephone pole, then struck the officer throwing him 25 feet across a lawn. The car came to rest wrapped around a tree.
