Lance Corporal. Enoch Lumley
York and Lancaster

Lance Corporal Lumley, 74, Furlong road, Bolton-on.-Dearne, was killed in action on Sept. 15. He was aged 21, single and before enlistment three years ago was employed at Hickleton Main.

He had been two years in France. His brother, who has also served, is now discharged from the Army. Mrs Lumley has received a message of sympathy from Lieut. S. Walker, who writes:

“As his platoon officer I was closely connected with him, and I have no hesitation in saying that the Battalion has lost one of the most cheerful, and competent soldiers it ever possessed. It will be a great relief to you to know that your son was killed instantaneously, and never suffered,”
