THE BRAVE QUINN BOYS.
Mr. Thomas Mickey, of Guildford.
writes to 'The Argus': — 'Referring to Leslie Quinn, who was killed in France on June 29. Both the soldier and his mother were natives of Parramatta. Mrs. Thomas Quinn was a daughter of the late Alfred French of the old Woollen Mills. Cecil Quinn, who was fighting with him in France, is another son, and Thos. Ross Quinn is now on his way to the front. Mrs. Quinn has given all her sons to fight for the flag and country. The loss of her eldest son has been a great blow to her.'
