I:> Several homes in Hay have been plunged into grief by the sad news, received from Aden, during the week-end. Among those reported, to have died, is Pte. Charles Lewis, son of Mrs Lewis, Brecon road, Hav. He is the second son Mrs Lewis has lost in the war, the other (Tom) being killed in action whilst landing with the 2nd Battalion of the S.W.B. at the Dardanelles. A third son, who is with the 2nd Monmouth shires, was recently home wounded, but has returned to the front. It is also sad to relate that, prior to the war, Mrs Lewis lost her husband through death. Much sympathy is extended to Mrs Lewis in her trial, as well as to the other parents.
