Birth: Aug. 23, 1919
Meaford
Ontario, Canada
Death: Jun. 11, 1944
Caen, France

Beloved husband of Mabel A. Sugg (Mills).
Son of Luther Mills and Mary, his wife.

Lieutenant in the 1st Hussars, Royal Canadian Armoured Corps, Harold Mills was killed at Le Mesnil-Patry in Normandy, France. The 1st Hussars armoured regiment and infantry of the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada ran into a large heavily-armoured SS Panzer unit massing for an attack. The Canadians hastily organized an ill-fated offensive of their own. Of the 18 Canadian tanks that went into action that day, only two units survived (one broke down before crossing the start line). Lt. Mills, age 24, was amongst the lost. He is buried at Bretteville-sur-Laize Canadian War Cemetery in France, where his name is also inscribed on the monument to Canadian soldiers.

Lt. Harold Mills is memorialized on page 395 of the Second World War Book of Remem-brance in the chapel of the Peace Tower, The Parliament Buildings, Ottawa, Canada.
