Lieutenant's Tragic Death v ■ SAD BLOW FOR A LLANELLY FAMILY. We deeply regret to announce the death of Lieut. Cyril Lewis, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Lewis, York House, which took place as the result of an acci- dent at Chatham on Wednesday. This gallant young officer, who was attached to the Middlesex Regiment, had seen a < lot of service in: France, and had been on duty in this country more recently. Last week he took a draft to Ireland and broke his return journey to London at Llanelly, where he stayed a few days. He left this town on Tuesday, and after reaching London went on to Chatham. On the following day, it appears that during practice a faulty cartridge back fired, breaking the notch of the bolt of the rifle. The piece flew outwards, and struck theofficer in the neck, causing a deep wound. All he said was, "What is it ?" And when a fellow-officer replied, "You're all right," Lieut. Lewis said, "Thanks," ;and passed away almost immediately. The inquest took place at Chatham on Friday, and the body was brought to Llanelly to-day (Saturday) for interment at the Church Cemetery at 3 o'clock on Monday. The funeral will be with mili- tary honours. The- deepest sympathy is expressed with Mr. and Mrs. Lewis in their bereavement. "Cyril" was highly popular in the town, ,and seemed to be marked out for a great career. Educated at the National Schools he then went on to Llandovery College, and won a scholarship at St. John's Col- lege, Oxford, where he was in residence when he volunteered for service. He has two brothers, one in France and the other in Egypt.
