Mrs. Wheaton, of Eumungerie, has
received a letter of sympathy from
Lieut.-Colonel Leslie J. Moreshead,
officer commanding the battalion in
which her son, the late Private Leslie
Norman Wheaton, served. Inter alia,
the O.C, wrote under date October 18-
"My dear Mrs. Wheaton, — I very much
regret I have been unable to write be-
fore this to express my deepest sym-
pathy with you in the death of your
gallant son, Pte. Leslie Norman
Wheaton. He was killed in action in
the battle of Bray-sur-Somme on
August 22, 1918. I want to tell you
that throughout his service your son
proved himself a very fine soldier. He
was always reliable and conscientious,
and he had a very keen sense of duty.
In action he distinguished himself by
his courage, cleverness and determina-
tion. We miss him greatly, and deeply
mourn his death. Officers non-com-
in offering you and your family most
heartfelt sympathy in this your sad
bereavement.— Yours, very sincerely,
Leslie J. Moreshead, Lieut.Colonel."
Mr. and Mrs. J. Buckley, "Home-

details of the death of their son, Cpl.
Peronne on September 1, 1918. Capt.
R. G. Downing, of the company in
which Cpl. Buckley had spent most of
the two years he was in France, says
the young soldier from Armatree had
always been looked upon as one of the
bravest n.c.o's in the line of B Com-
pany. In the battle at Peronne he
eclipsed all his previous daring re-
cords by rushing a German machine-
gun post, and capturing 15 men and
two guns. For this he had since been
recommended for the V.C., and had he
survived the awful ordeal he would
have been awarded a D.C.M., which
cannot be awarded after death. Later
in the day, while endeavoring to find
the road across the moat, which held
up the advance, a machine-gun bullet
pierced young Buckley's forehead, and
death was instantaneous. Cpl. Buck-
ley, who was 27 years of age, enlisted

It was one of the most painful sur-
prises of the Christmas season. The

been one continuous joy, and never did
she seem happier than when she was
at the pictures on Wednesday night.
On returning home, she told her hus-
band all about the entertainment, and

a girl in the home of her parents (the

able. A girl of rare qualities, a wife
and mother of rare devotedness to the
domestic duties and sustained by the
strongest of family affections, her pass-
ing causes a void which can never be

Dubbo District Hospital on Christmas

had served over three years in the
A.I.F., most of the time at the front,
and the roaring of the thunder of the
the horrors of the shnmbles resulting
distinctions in this life. In the com-
pleteness of the peace which he and
his parents had long yearned for, right
on the threshold of a new life, which
often and often in the vigils of the
long nights of service he had looked
forward to, right there, and right here
within the hearing of the plaudits of
his friends and admirers, this gallant,
big-hearted young Australian was
stricken. His illness was short. A
seeming trifle was its origin— a tiny
scratch on the nose. But the young
man whom the Germans could not kill
was soon prostrate, and meningitis su-
pervening the end came quickly. It
was sad, and the sadness affected the
whole community. Many a home in
Dubbo which had been all joy, and
laughter and childish pranks had prat-
tle at midday was suddenly invested
with shadows at the news of the young
soldier's passing spread from house to
house. The funeral next day was very
largely attended. A service was first
held at Holy Trinity Church, the
Rector, Rev. C. W. Leavers, being con-
ductor. At the graveside the Rector
also conducted the burial service, and
at the conclusion thereof made feeling
references to the circumstances for
which his audience had been fore-
gathered. The Rector, speaking for
the community, tendered the fullest
sympathy with the parents and family
of the dead hero, and expressed his
confidence that the parents of three
soldier sons would be ahle to prove
that they were able to bear distress,
sorrow and bereavement with the same
courage as their sons had faced the
horrors and the infernos of the war.
Many beautiful wreaths from loving
and sorrowing friends were laid on the
coffin, which was also draped with the
uuion Jack and the colors of Corporal
attended in great numbers, and Messrs.
E. B. Serisier, J. Martin, E. Cole and
H. Cole — men who had seen many a
comrade buried on foreign soil— were
the pall-bearers. Mr. J. R. Tighe
made the arrangements.
