LOCAL HERO.—The news has just reached the Dderw to the effect that Second-Lieut. G. T. Prickard (3rd Batt.

He obtained his commission in November, and, early in May, was sent out with a draft of 500 men and 20 officers to join the 2nd Battalion of the South Wales Borderers, engaged in the Dardanelles. However, on arrival there, he was attached to the 1st Royal Dublin Fusiliers, who were brigaded with the South Wales Borderers, and formed part of the famous 29th Division, which received such special mention in Sir Ian Hamilton's last dis- patch. He landed on May 27th, and, on June 4th, his regiment took part in the general ad- vance ordered for that day. He was last seen leading his men in an assault on the Turkish trenches, which they gallantly reached. But not one returned, and it is believed all were killed.
