Passing Of White Flat Resident 

The sudden death occurred at 5 a.m. on Thursday, February 8, of Mr. George Henry Albert Howard, a well known and highly respected resident of White Flat. He was working about in his garden on Wednesday and went to bed in good spirits. His wife was awakened by a gurgling noise, and when she got up and walked around to his bedside she found he had passed away. It came as a shock to everyone. Mr. Howard was a returned soldier from World War I, of the original 43rd Battn. He had   lived in the Port Lincoln district for 68 years, and was the eldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Howard. His remains were laid to rest in the soldiers' portion of Happy Valley Cemetery. He leaves a widow, for whom much sympathy is felt.
