LLftKCYNIDR BIY. I THE LATE LCE.-CPL. HARRY HARRIS. I The sad news received from the War Office some time ago of the death of Lee.-Cpl. Harry Harris-, 1st Breck- nocks, Mhow, India, ha« now been confirmed in the let- ters received this week from two of hL- Clangnidr com- rades. Pte. David Edwards, writing to his sister, Mrs Davies, Rock Cattage, savs.:—"You will have heard be- fore you get this letter about poor Harry Harris.. He died on the 24th October, and was buried on the 25th. He was taken to the hospital on the 2Lst. Herby Lewis was able to so to his funeral. All the other Llangviiidr boys were in hospital. Poor Harry was made lance- corporal about a month ago, and was working at his trade (carpentering) every day. I am sure his poor father and mother are up-set." Pte. Tom Davies, writ- THE LATE LCE.-CPL. HARRY HARRIS, I ing to his parents, Mr and Mrs Davies, Glaesfaer Farm, says:—"It was very sad about poor Harry, and I feel very sorry for his parents. He was in hospital four days, and during that time he was very ill. I was sorry I could not attend the funeral, as. I came out of hospital it-lie evening he was buried. He was buried respectfully in the cemetery by the chapel minister, and had -several wreaths. Our platoon gave one." Deceased, who passed away peacefully after a severe attack of influenza, was the youngest son of Mr and M'M Samuel Karris, Penheolrhyn. He joined the Urecknocks at the outset of the war, accompanied the first batch that went to Aden, where he took part in an engagement against the Turks, and was then drafted to Mlicw. Suffering from enteric fever a great deal of Ili, time in India, lie was passed in lio,-pital, and through sanatorium treatment he was restored to his u-sual health. He was a young man of humble po-ition, possessing a sweet temper, and was upright in char- acter. He was passionately attached to his home, and was highly esteemed by all who knew him intimately. A joiner by trade, he served his apprenticeship at the firm cf Messr*. Watkins. and Bevan. Llangynidr, and became a most efficient tradesmen. Words cannot ex- press- the severity of the blow to his aged parents, who are now mourning their loss of two sons through the war-the eldest son, Pte. David Harris, of the Aus- tralian Imperial Force, having fallen in action on the Western front in September last. Sincerest sympathy is felt for the bereaved parents and other near re- latives. A memorial service was held at the Congregational Church, Llangynidr last Sunday evening, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Gomer Marris. The following letter was received from one of the officers in Mhow — "Dear Mr and Mrs Harri,s.-lt is with great regret that I write to you on behalf of the officers and men of my company to offer you their sincerest sympathy in the sad loss of your son, Pte. H. Harris, B Co. of this regiment. His death is deeply. felt by us all here, as lie was a most popular I)ov as he was a most popular boy; and it is impossible to praise too highly the cheerful and soldierly way in which h-i- carrted out all his duties. He died in the hospital here, and I can assure you that everything possible was done for his comfort during his illness. He was buried in the cemetery here amongst others from the regi- ment. You will feel his. loss very deeply, but this con- solation can I offer, that he died bravely on service, and that, though far from home, he was among friends till the last.—Yours sincerely, John L. French, Lieut., B Co., 1st Brecknock's. Batt., S.W.B."
