DEATH OF ANOTHER HORTONIAN

Information is just to hand that Robert Brown Redmayne, younger son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Redmayne, of South House, Horton-in-Ribblesdale, was killed in action on July 14th in France. In a letter to the parents, his company officer states that he died bravely firing his Lewis gun against a strong body of Germans who were holding up the advance of the company, and that it was largely due to his coolness and courage in serving the gun in difficult circumstances that a subsequent advance was made by his comrades. Had he lived his conduct would certainly have been brought to the notice of the Divisional General.

The deceased was 26 years of age and joined the West Yorkshire Regiment last September, and after a somewhat short but intensive training he was drafted to the Western Front, where he had been through much fighting. The sympathy of a very wide circle is extended to his parents, brother and sisters.
