Roll of Honour. On 9 April 1918 William Albert Fenn of the 21st Middlesex Regiment was reported wounded and missing somewhere in France, and now unfortunately it is presumed that the soldier died on or about that date. The deceased soldier, who was highly respected locally, was in his 29th year and was the eldest son of Mr W Fenn of 74 New St Johns Road. He had been about 3 years with the Colours. The bereaved family and the fiancee, Miss F Le Masurier, have our sincere sympathy.
