Roll of Honour. Private Stanley George Bailey of the Machine Gun Corps, having been seriously wounded during the big advance in July was moved to England but unfortunately his injuries were so severe that despite all that medical skill could suggest he passed away and was buried with full Military Honours at Mutley in Plymouth. The deceased soldier was a son of Mr T Bailey of 17 Garden Lane and had been at the Front since 1914. He was also a brother of Private Yarcombe Bailey formerly of the 3rd Battalion RMIJ and now of the Army Service Corps. The deceased enlisted in the Hampshire Regiment and was later transferred to the Machine Gun Corps. We offer the bereaved family our sincere sympathy.
