Victory Medal Found in England Leads to the Kitchener Tombstone of World War I Soldier
The mystery is slowly unravelling. Until some months ago, nothing much was known about the nine Sikh-Canadians who joined the Canadian army and fought in World War I (1914–1918)—at a time when Sikhs weren’t even allowed to immigrate to Canada. Then an amateur historian, Sandeep Singh Brar, bought a Victory Medal that led him to a Kitchener graveyard, where he found the tombstone of Private Buckam Singh. “That man was a real hero,” said Brar of Brampton, Ontario. “He fought for Canada, came back and died alone in a hospital.” Buckam Singh’s story likely wouldn’t have been told if it hadn’t been for the medal. Brar bought it from a dealer in England in 2007, believing it had been bestowed upon a British- Indian soldier. He got a shock when he carefully read the inscription on its rim: Singh had been a member of the 20th Canadian Infantry, and the medal listed his name, rank and registration number. Over the next few months, Brar went to Ottawa many times to track down military records. He discovered that Singh had fought in Flanders Fields, Belgium and France, and was injured by shrapnel and a bullet in the leg. The Toronto Star, then called the Toronto Daily Star, reported his injuries on August 9, 1916, in a list of Canadian soldiers wounded in battle. Singh was treated at a hospital in Boulogne, France, run by Guelph’s Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae (the soldier and poet who wrote “In Flanders Fields”). Singh was sent to England in 1917. While recovering there, he contracted tuberculosis and was sent to the Freeport Hospital in Kitchener, which was run by the Canadian army. He died two years later at age 25 and was buried in Kitchener’s Mount Hope Cemetery.

Section I: Reading

Private Singh’s story, which had drawn little attention for 90 years, attracted about 50 people to a Remembrance Day ceremony at the Kitchener cemetery in 2008. T. Sher Singh, a Guelph lawyer who attended the ceremony, said the discovery of the grave is significant for the Sikh-Canadian community. “It means that we have a history in the building of this nation,” said Singh. “Not only have we built the railroads and cleared the forests and slaved in the lumber mills, but we have given our lives when it was necessary.” Brar believes Private Singh’s grave may be the only one in Canada belonging to a SikhCanadian World War I soldier. His Victory Medal may also be the only one awarded to a Sikh soldier. This story has become an obsession for Brar, who created a Web site to showcase his findings. He said Private Singh’s family, who lived in a village in Punjab, India, knew nothing about his time at war. “They just received a notice when he died. There are still many blanks in his story,” said Brar, who is trying to find Singh’s living relatives in India. That, he said, will be the next chapter in Buckam Singh’s story.

“Thanks for coming,” Eric said, shaking hands with the town councillor. “I’m curious about the ideas in your intriguing letter.” Mr. Hanson nodded toward the parking lot near where they stood. “Please tell me more.” Eric took a deep breath. “Ever since the school closed two years ago, this area has deteriorated. But if we clean up the litter and repair the fence, it will be a great place for a skateboard park.” Mr. Hanson scanned the broken concrete, nodding. “The old school is being converted into a community arts centre. This area could become a vital part of the neighbourhood again.” “Here’s a picture of a skateboard park in another town. Look how busy it is.” Eric was relieved that the community representative seemed receptive to the idea. Mr. Hanson studied the photograph, then asked, “If town council provides the money, how will you and your friends contribute?” Eric felt optimistic now. “We’ll help design and build the ramps. More experienced boarders could give lessons to raise money!” Eric’s voice was enthusiastic. “We’ll still need parking spaces, and the neighbours will not like late-night noise. They might worry about vandalism and—” “The skateboard park would use only the back corner, which isn’t near any houses. Since young people already hang out here, why not give them something fun and physically active to do in their free time?” The furrows of Mr. Hanson’s brow unwrinkled, and Eric’s hopes rose again. “If everyone works together,” Eric thought, “maybe this idea will become reality.”
