May 17, 1918
Private Dick BULL eldest son of Mr and Mrs L.M. BULL, of Ozenkadnook, who
was home on final leave, returned to camp by Tuesday nights train.

In our past issue it was announced that Private Norman LANE had been killed.
Word has been received that his brother Jack has been wounded. The eldest
brother was gassed some time ago. The three brothers were the only members
of the family of the late Mr and Mrs LANE, and after their parents death
lived with their uncle Mr John LANE, at Karnak (now of Adelaide), on the
property now held by Mr BURTON.

Private Marsden WIDDECOMBE, son of Mr and Mrs Frank WIDDECOMBE, of Gymbowen,
writes to a Natimuk friend that he left Broadmeadows about 2.30 p.m. on
April 29th for Sydney, when he was taken out to Liverpool camp. He was able
to spend a few hours in Sydney. Next day he boarded the "Euripides" and
embarked for Wellington, where he arrived safely. He was having a good time
and was in splendid spirits.
