Memorial service.

We deeply regret that in our last week’s report of the Nelson memorial services to the fallen heroes, there were a few omissions. The name of Private Ernest B Jones, Mechanical Transport Company, should have been included in the Roll of Honour. Private Jones who was the only son of Mr and Mrs T B Jones, 71 High Street, died whilst on active service in Constantinople.
