'Addington Soldier Gives His Life'
On November 19th the employees in the Car Shop at Addington met together to pass a vote of sympathy and condolence with the parents of the late Wm. J. Gregory, killed in action at the Dardanelles.
Mr Smith, W. S. Foreman, who was in the chair, made feeling reference to our late shopmate, and stated that no man could do more for his country than lay down his life. The following resolution was carried in silence:
It is with deep regret we have heard the sad news of the death of our late shopmate, William Gregory, and extend to his sorrowing parents and family our heartfelt sympathy in their sorrow. Trusting that the knowledge of his having answered his country's call, and died upholding the honour of the Empire, thereby proving himself a worthy and brave son of the Dominion, will help to soften the blow which has fallen upon them.
