Death was instantaneous

A voice was silenced.

THE WAR.

Sergeant Robin Francis was killed in action on October 5th. Death was instantaneous. He is another of our Ascot “lads” of whom we are proud. Many of our readers will remember him as the leading treble boy in All Saints Choir. It was a wonderful voice. His memory is precious to us as a manly, upright, Christian young man. We offer our true sympathy to Mr. and Mrs. Francis and their family, who have now lost two out of their home circle. R.I.P.
