Killed in action by the bursting of a shell

Another family was bereaved.

THE WAR

We greatly regret to recall the sad news which reached Mr and Mrs G Wells, of the Kennels, on Sunday, October 6th, that their son, Gunner J Wells, RGA, had been killed in action by the bursting of a shell on September 30th. He died immediately, on the field. His age was 22 years.
