Much sympathy will be extended to Mr and Mrs Amery of 1 Mersey Terrace,Seacombe in the sad loss of their son Reginald, a Private in the 21st Kings Liverpool Regiment who died on Monday from the effects of Scarlet Fever.

The deceased who had had but a short Military career was only 19 years of age, and during that time he had been in training  he had had to be treated at the hospital for several weeks. As a civilian he followed the occupation of a Shipping Clerk, and was employed by Elder Dempster Line. He joined the Pals some six months ago, and was much liked by the fellow members of his company.He had four brothers in the Army who have seen active service in France and the Dardenelles, and were present at the funeral to pay a last homage to their dead brother. Private Reginald Amery enjoyed considerable popularity among a good circle of friends, who will deeply sympathise with the near relatives in the great loss they have sustained.
