'He was still quite a small boy when he left Malvern to go Sedbergh, but extraordinarily bright and quick. He was in the Territorial Force before the war, and did good service through the five stressful years. Early this year he contracted influenza, pneumonia intervened, and he died at Waterloo, near Liverpool, on February 23rd, leaving a widow to mourn his untimely loss. He was only twenty-four.'
