It will be learned with regret that Mr Noel Leonard Calvert, second son of Mr John Calvert, of Irrewarra, was killed in action against the Boers in South Africa near Bethel, during the advance of General French's column. The deceased was about 23 years of age.

He was a member of the 6th Dragoon Guards (Carabineers).
