Killed in France.


Mr. and Mrs. Alfred John Field, of Queen-street, Auburn, last week received official notification of the death of their second son, Private Cecil Roy Field, at the front, in France. The telegram stated that, he was "accidentally killed," but gave no particulars beyond stating that the sad occurrence happened on thee last day of the old year. The particulars will no doubt come later. Deceased, who was 23 years of age, enlisted at Lithgow, where he worked at his trade as a bricklayer. He was of a quiet and reserved disposition and a good living lad. He left for the front in August, 1916, was wounded once and on another occasion was some time in hospital suffering from trench fever. A young brother, Private Sydney Arthur Field, went to the war a few months later and is still there. The Field family resided in Lithgow for years, and were much respected.
