Aberystwyth Corporal. Lance-Corporal J. F. PARRY, Son of Mr. and Mrs. D. Parry, Brynawel Hotel, died of wounds in France. He had a gunshot wound in the right leg and a fractured fibula from which he died. Mr. and Mrs. Parry have received the sympathy of the King and Queen in their bereavement. Chaplain R. N. Burns in a letter says that the doctors and nurses did all they could for Lance-corporal Parry and that he (the Chaplain) ministered to him. He did not suffer much and was buried with military honours in the Doullens Cemetery. The Rev. J. Parry Brooks, Wesleyan chaplain, in his letter, said he saw Lance-corporal Parry on his way to be treated by the doctors, had a little chat with him, and promised to write to his parents. He was exceptionally cheerful. A memorial service will be held at St. Paul's Great Darkgate-street, next Sunday evening.
