PRIVATE UTTERIDGE OF FORTH.
The Rev. W. T. Baker pastor of the Forth Methodist church was requested by the Commonwealth Department to convey to Mrs Utteridge the sad news that her son Albert had been killed in action in France on Feb. 26. The news brought grief to many hearts for Pte Utteridge was a fine stamp of soldier — brave, kind and unassuming and greatly respected by all who were brought in contact with him. The sorrowful mother is a widow, and a few months back was called to mourn the loss of a younger son, Harry, who died of meningitis contracted while at Claremont Camp. The sympathy of the district goes out to the widow in her sad bereavement
