DIED HERO. Abergavenny Officer's Fate at the Dardanelles. The following letter dated August 13th, baR recently beea received by Mrs Percy Cooper, Ambleside, Abergavenny, whose SOD, Second. lieutenant Ltooard GoBae Cooper, of the 4'h Battalion South Wales Borderers, was killed at the Dardanelles on August 96b :— Dear Mrs Coopar,-I am sore yon would t like to know how your dear eon met; with his death. It was early on August 9th that the Turks Attempted a surprise attack open us, when we were holding a very difficult position which we had Dot time to properly strengthen. My company bad to occupy a rough knoll, sovered with a scrob, and in the semi-darkness it was very difficult to see the enemy. I immediately ordered up two platoons-No, 11 (your son's) and No. 11 (Mr Miller's)-and we succeeded in keeping back the Turks. Unhappily, Leonard, whilst gallantly leading and enooaragiog his men, was abot through the body, and passed away almost at once. Mr Miller was shot immediately afterwards, and a little later we made a charge which drove off the Turks, and thus enabled uR to secure ourselves with greater certainty. Before night- faU we made a second charge, and at the end of the day I found that all toy remaining officers bad been wounded. We had, however, succeeded in repulaiug the Tarks, and, with the exception of snipers, they have not given as a great deal of trouble since. I should like to tell you how fond we all werp of Leonard. He was a nocsi gallant lad, and I greatly rnisH bim now. Yon may like to know that we were con- gratulated by Sir Ian Hamilton on our day's work. Please accept my sincerest synoathy in yoar trouble, which is shared byimyself and all your Bon's friends. Yoora, with d-epfst sympathy, C. E. KITCHEN (Capt. Commanding iT C Coy., 4',b S. W. B )

INQUEST AT BWLCH. Octogenarian's Death. On Wednesday in last week, Mr R. H. A Davies, coroner for the Crickhowell District, held an inquest at the Star Inn, Bwlch, touching the death of Mr William Thomas, Old Road, Bwlch. Mary Thomas, Old Road Bwlch, daughter of the deceased, said he was a retired post- man, 83 years of age. On Friday, July 23rd last, he met with an accident and brok a thigh. Dr Jonee attended him ever since and he died on Monday, August 30th, at 6.10 p.m. She was not present when the accident occurred. She had gone to the shop and left deceased sitting in a chair by the side of the fire. He was then in his usual health. He had been feeble on his legs for 3 or 4 years. He could get round the house but required her assistance if he went out on the road. On her return from the shop she found him sitting in a chair and Mr and Mrs Evans with him. He said he had fallen down by crossing to the fireplace and had hurt his leg and had called for help. Mary Evans, wife of David Evans, Old Road, Bwlch, a neighbour, said she was called into deceased's house between 6 30 and 7 p.m.. She found him on his back on the floor of the kitchen. She failed to raise him and went for her husband. They then got him into a chair. The doctor was sent for at once. Deceased told them he was moving from one chair to the other and he missed his seat and fell. Dr. A. E. Jones said he found deceased lying on a couch in the kitchen, with the neck of the left thigh-bone broken. He set it and attended him until his death. Deceased did very well for nearly the whole time, but hypostatic pneumonia set in (as was very common in such cases) and he died of heart fAilnrA The jury (of which Mr James Mainwaring was foreman), returned a verdict in accord- ance with the medical evidence. The jurors, at the suggestion of Mr R. Fitton, readily handed over their fees to Miss Thomas.

CAPTURE OF TSING-TAU. Borderer's Diary of the Operations. Among the achievements of British arms that received notice in the first six months of the war was the part taken by the 2nd Battalion South Wales Borderers in the siege and capture of Tsing-tau. The full story is told in a diary kept by Private Smale, who went through the Kiao-chau campaign and has recently returned from the Dardanelles wounded. The regiment was in South Africa when the war broke out, but, under the command of Brigadier-General Barnardiston, landed on September 22nd, about 900 strong, at Laoshan Bay, together with the 36th Sikhs, who mustered 450. Summing up the work of the British force, the diarist says:—"We (the Borderers) lay entrenched four weeks at Pangchincheng, and our trenches were proof against shrapnel, but not strong enough to stop heavy shells or Z5 bombs thrown by the German aeroplane, which several times found our trenches. They were made of coffee tins with tin propellers to keep them upright during the descent. Captain Collier, of the Australian Intelligence Staff, who was in charge of the transport, fired at one and exploded it. "The Sikhs fought on our right all the time. Most of our casualties occurred on the night of November 5tb, when we crept up very close to the enemy's position. The advance lay over a river bed planted with wire en- tanglements and mines, while on the other side was a high whitewashed wall. The British troops crossed the river under a galling shrapnel fire, and managed to dig themselves in on the roadway on the summit of the wall practically unobserved. Major Munns was killed by shrapnel and two other officers were wounded. Private Penfair, of C Company, was bit by a pom-pom shell". The diarist's entry for November 5th shows that it was a memorable day. "Shot and shell all around us, not one, but a thousand. The searchlight and blue light, then red and white flashes and the booming of the shell was enough to send anyone mad. But we had to get on with our work. First one and then another were carried back on stretchers. I think I must have been one of the lucky ones. Then I heard one of our men holler out, 11 am hit, arm and leg We dressed this man and had to carry him back the best way we could with a rifle and three Japanese coats to form a stretcher. We got fired on twice while we were getting him back, but I can never forget the way we had to come back with this man, wet through and sticking in the mud. That night there were six killed in C Company and about 54 wounded. Our company was very lucky, losing only one killed. Th6 surrender came on November 7th. The attack was begun at 5 o'clock this niorn- ing, with bullets flying in every direction. About 7 o'clock the men out In the trench were saying that they believed it was all over, There were white flilgS flying all over the place. Then we reeeived the order to march into Tsing-tau."
