    DEATHS. DIED ON SERVICE. MARR – Died of wounds received in France, Private Frederick Harold Marr, late of Abbotsford, aged 19 years.

    He’s gone, poor lad, but how we mourn,
    The loss of our dear brother Fred,
    But the Lord above will preserve his love,
    For the love ones he left behind
