Information has been received that Pte Francis Grimley has made the supreme sacrifice in France. He was in the regular Army when war broke out and had taken part in most of the heavy fighting. When home recently he looked very fit and well. He was behind the lines when a bomb from a German aeroplane burst near him. The family have suffered severely in the war, and sympthay will be felt for them in this fresh bereavement.
