    Although Hollingshead died in Sydney, Nova Scotia, he hailed from Summerberry, Saskatchewan.

    The Regina Leader-Post for 19 February 1947 has an article on him saying he died in hospital after a years illness.

    https://svwm.ca/casualty-display/?ID=A000008318 has the year's illness as diabetes.

    Regards,

    Dave
