LATE PRIVATE T.E. BULLOCK

There are many old friends in Clitheroe and Grindleton who will hear with regret of the death in action of Private T.E. Bullock, of the Sherwood Foresters, third son of Mr. William Bullock who farmed the land adjacent to Jubilee mill. Mrs. Bullock (his mother) is now living at the Waddington Hospital.

In his 39th year, Private Bullock served about two and a half years in the A.S.C. before being drafted into the infantry, and he had only been in the line two months when he fell in action on the 4th October. He left Clitheroe about a dozen years ago, removing to Grindleton where he was employed on Kempstone Farm by Mr. Robinson. After he joined the Army his wife and two sons went to live at Barnoldswick.

DOUBLE BEREAVEMENTS

Two sons killed within a month is a terrible experience which has befallen Mrs. Bullock, who lives at Waddington Almshouses. On October 4th, her third son, Private T.E. Bullock, Sherwood Foresters, met his death in action and, yesterday morning, Mr. J. Bullock, Jubilee-terrace, was officially notified that Private Rainford W. Bullock, the fourth son, made the great sacrifice on Oct. 26. He joined the Loyal North Lancashire Regt. in October, 1916, and was sent to France last January. He was 33 years of age, and worked for Messrs. Carter's cement works. Prior to entering the employ of Messrs. Carters, however, he was in the service of Mr. Sam Berry, Mearley. He was unmarried. Another son, Private Edgar Bullock, is at present in hospital in Mesopotamia suffering from malarial fever, and general sympathy will go out to the grief-stricken mother and family.

A further double bereavement is reported from Dalehead, Mr. Carr having lost another son in action on the 24th ulto. It was only last week that we published the photograph of his son, John, of the Grenadier Guards, who died on October 14th.
