Pollnow, Louis (Death from Pneumonia – 14 Nov 1918)

Louis Pollnow is another soldier from this vicinity who has made the Supreme Sacrifice, his parents having received a letter on Friday announcing his death in a hospital in England from pneumonia. Louis was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Pollnow of town Hewett and was called into the army in July, going to Camp Grant. It is evident that he had but recently gone across and after landing in England had been taken to a hospital there. It is hoped that more details of the death of this very estimable young man may be received for publication next week.
