Son of John Reid Ferguson, 'Tiverton', Castle Street, Parkside, South Australia

Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Ferguson, of Tiverton, Castle street, Parkside, have been notified that their younger son, Charles, was killed in action in France on October 12. Pte. Ferguson, who was 21 years of age, left with infantry reinforcements last February. He was a man of great promise, an accomplished musician, and a deep student of literature. Prior to enlistment he was in the service of the Commercial Union Assurance Company, and he was a member of Stow Memorial Church Choir.
