Obituary

It is with feelings of deep sorrow that we have to record the death of 2nd. Lieut. N. W. Goodwin, late of this battalion, killed in aerial action on September 16th, 1917.
He joined the First Battalion as a 2nd Lieut. within a few days of the outbreak of war, and was posted to "B" Coy. A keen and capable officer, with a cheery temperament, he soon gained the confidence of all ranks.
When the battalion embarked for India he remained behind, as he was sitting for the Entrance Examination for Sandhurst. Passing out, he was posted to the Middlesex Regiment, being afterwards attached to the R.F.C.
