     He died on 15 December 1944 at Berg en Dal, Gelderland, Netherlands, at age 37 near Eindjeshof farm, south of Erlekom. His body was not recovered. Two statements by riflemen indicate they were attacking an enemy position. They sheltered behind a dyke while artillery fired, then crawled forward over the dyke and road until they came to a second road leading to a farm building occupied by the enemy. They were ordered to fall back and then came under machine gun fire. The two witnesses got back to safety but did not see George Luloff again. He was serving with the Regina Rifles Regiment.1,2 Rifleman George Walter Luloff is remembered at the Groesbeek Memorial, Gelderland, Netherlands.3

RECALL ONTARIO SCHOOL FRIENDS
Rosenthal's Former Pupils Hold Reunion at Summach Home, Near Asquith
ASQUITH - A very interesting and unusual event was arranged on Wenesday July 1 on the grounds of the home of Mr. A Summach, eight and one half miles south of Asquithin the Avondale district. The affair was unusual in that it was a "school pals reunion." Twenty-one families, 125 people gathered together in the afternoon, practically everyone having attended school in Rosenthal, Ont., some 25 or 30 years ago. A few of the neighbors other than the "school pals" were present also to make the afternoon a success.

It was formally opened by all singing O Canada. An address which was delivered by A. Summach, renewed memories of the past.

Mrs. W. Riston (sic) Sr., was the oldest parent in the gathering, the majority of the parents of those in the reunion having passed on in the pioneer days in the Killaoe, Ont., district. Lunch was served and photographs taken.

Jack Berger and Mr. and Mrs. Summach had spent untiring efforts in organizing the event and making it a success. Willard and Ruby Berger, of Hanley, contributed two appropriate numbers: "The Little Red Schoolhouse, " and "Memories."4
