Canadian soldier George Price died at Ville-sur-Haine, a village about fifteen kilometres east of Mons, Belgium — shot by a German sniper. Price was a native of Falmouth (b. 1892), Nova Scotia, but was serving in the 28th (Saskatchewan) Battalion because he was living in Moose Jaw when he was conscripted in December 1917. He is believed to be the last Canadian soldier from the British Empire and Nova Scotian to die in the First World War — just two minutes before the armistice took effect at 11am. There were over 10,900 soldiers, both Allied and enemy, who were killed on November 11th. A day earlier, on Nov. 10th, 24-year old Second Lieutenant Alexander “Billy” McHardy, of McLellan’s Mountain, Pictou County, became the last Royal Air Force pilot to be killed in the war who was also a Nova Scotian.
