ROLL OF HONOUR – Second-Lieutenant S. A. F. Pilgrim

This officer was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Pilgrim, of Noyna Mede, Foulridge. He was educated at Wells House, Malvern, and Uppingham, and with the view of a University career after the war he entered Oriel College, Oxford. He was a member of the Uppingham School O.T.C., and was gazetted to the Tank Corps in October of last year. His battalion was in action with the Australians in August last, and after a short leave home he was again in action and was mortally wounded on September 24th. He was just 21 years of age. We extend sincere sympathy to the bereaved family.
