 Gordon Frederick Taylor FRITH

By the death of Private Frith from dysentery at Tank, No. 8 Platoon has sustained a great loss. Before the war Frith was a Civil Service clerk serving at the Board of Education, but joined the Battalion at Hebbal last year with our first draft. He was sent up to Dalhousie from Jullundur on account of his youth, but rejoined us at Tank, thence forward acting as H. Q. Orderly throughout the campaign. His boyish smile and unfailing good humour is keenly missed.
