Roll of Honour. It is with deep regret
we state that Mrs Allen of 3 Frederick Place, Hilary
Street, has received information that her husband, Private
William Richard Allen of the Royal Scots Fusiliers,
was killed in action in France on 30 September. The
deceased soldier was an Englishman and joined up in
Nottingham. He was stationed here with the 4th Battalion
South Staffordshires and was most of the time employed
as a telephone operator in the District Office. He was
only 22 at the time of his death. We tender the widow
and other members of the family our sincere condolences.
