      To our old member and shopmate, Mr J. Ahearn, his wife and family. We offer our sincere sympathy in their sad loss by the death of their son Reggie. He was killed in action in the big fighting on the west front in September. Another son (Len) is now on his way to the Front, having left with the 17th.
