The body of Roger Frederick Honey, the 19year old youth who was drowned in the flood on April 6, was recovered yesterday morning from the Murrumbidgee River at North Wagga.

Honey was caught in the river current when he attempted to drive a horse and sulky across the floodwaters on the North Wagga Road. The horse suddenly swerved, overturned the sulky, and Honey was thrown out into the water.

Seen by Children

Police stated yesterday that early in the morning some children saw something lying In the water under a log. They told Mr. Les Lidden, of North Wagga, who went and investigated. He later contacted the police, and the body was brought to the surface.

Parties of police and civilians searched the river for some weeks after the accident was first reported, and Mr. Liddea was one of the volunteers who dived repeatedly in search of the body.

Roger Honey was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick James Honey, of 19 Wall Street, North Wagga, and grandson of Mr. W. H. Honey, also of Wall Street, and the late Mrs. Honey.
