A nephew of Mrs. Russell of the Ship Inn, Port Albert, recently met his death in battle. A clipping before us says that Private V. R. Ledwidge, on active service, second youngest son of Mr. R. Ledwidge, of Carrathol, died of wounds on 10th July. Private Ledwidge enlisted from Hay in 1914, and had experienced 3½ years service. He had been wounded three times, returning again to the firing line after each recovery. He was a member of one of the largest and finest fighting families in the district. By the name of Ledwidge alone no less than thirteen have enlisted, four having been killed, three returned unfit for service, and six still remaining bravely endeavoring to stay the advance of the ruthless foe. The family generally have contributed no less than twenty-two, the best part of whom are still doing their duty.
