Private Charles Abelson of Montreal, Quebec, was presumed to have died on October 14, 1942, according to an official announcement. He was aboard the S.S. Caribou, which was torpedoed and sank in Cabot Strait. He happened to be aboard the ill-fated ship because he had overstayed his leave and missed the transport on which he had been scheduled to sail. Private Abelson joined the army in Montreal on May 6, 1940.
