The sad news has come to hand, this morning, from Salonica, of the death of Lce.-Corpl. T. Milman, 9th Batt. East Lancashire Transport [sic], Salonica Forces, who resided with his aunt, Mrs. Redman, at 12, Walker street. Deceased, who was well-known in the Shaw Bridge district, has two brothers serving in France – Cyclist R.H. Millman and Lance-Corporal J.W. Millman, and a cousin, Pvte. R.H. Redmayne. The letter, forwarded by Pte. J. Hathany, is to the following effect:–

“I am writing these few lines on behalf of myself and platoon to inform you of the sorrowful news that Lance-Corporal Tom Millman, who was a personal friend of mine since enlistment, was killed on the 10th April, about 6-30 p.m. His bright and amiable spirit made him many fast friends, and we all feel his loss very keenly. I was a witness of the incident, and can say poor Tom’s death was instantaneous, and that he felt no pain.”
