OFFICER'S GALLANT ACT. I In a letter to the parents of Second Lieu- tenant Douglas Wood, of the Lancashire Fusiliers, now serving abroad. Colonel J. M. Graham intimates that this young omeer has suffered grievous injury and lost his right hand through an act of heroism. Wood was taking bombing class when one of his men threw a live bomb, hitting the parapet. The bomb fell back into the trench, and Wood promptly seized it In order to throw it away, but the bomb exploded and blew off his hand. Colonel Graham states that by his gallant act the omcer "undoubtedly saved the lives of many of the men." He has reported the facts with a view to their being placed before his Majesty. Wood, who lived in Whalley Range, Manchester, was educated at Leeds and in Belgium. Before receiving his commission in the British Army he had served for seven months in the 3rd Belgian Lancers. His back is severely injured, but he is progressing favourably in hospital abroad.
